EUSTIS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say central Florida deputies killed a suspected stalker who had earlier shot two workers - one fatally - at an auto-parts store.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office reports that deputies fatally shot the suspect, who wasn't immediately identified, behind an Advance Discount Auto Parts store Wednesday morning. Two hours earlier, the man shot Rose Nelson and Trina Perkins. Nelson died from her wounds, and Perkins was taken to a nearby hospital.
The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/LJ4A1U ) reports that Nelson had told Eustis police on Monday that she was being stalked by the man involved in her eventual shooting. The 54-year-old woman only knew the man's first name and had been working with police to identify and locate him.
No customers were inside the store at the time of the shooting.
