CLEVELAND (AP) — The medical examiner has identified the airport security officer killed in a murder-suicide at an employee parking lot at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
She was identified Monday as 20-year-old Kimberly Alkahder (AL'-keh-dehr) of Strongsville.
Police say 28-year-old Ahmad Alkahder fatally shot his estranged wife — a Transportation Security Asministration officer — before killing himself Sunday.
The wife and a second TSA employee were commuting to work. Police say Ahmad Alkahder apparently followed her to the off-site lot, blocked her in her car with his vehicle and began firing.
Police say he fired at the other TSA agent but missed.
The shooting occurred at a lot north of the airport.
