Authorities in Cleveland say a man fatally shot his airport-security-officer wife, fired at a second person, and then killed himself at an off-site airport employee parking lot.

Police spokesman Sgt. Sammy Morris says the shooting late Sunday morning on the employee parking lot of the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport was an apparent homicide and suicide.

The police spokesman says the man, identified as 28-year-old Ahmad Alkahder, apparently followed her to the off-site lot, blocked her in her car by his vehicle and then began firing. Authorities say Alkahder fired at another Transportation Security Administration employee who was commuting to work with the man’s estranged wife but missed.

The shooting occurred at the Riveredge airport employee parking lot, located north of the airport in an industrial area along Interstate 480.

Police were not sure of a motive for the shooting.
