A Salisbury shooting in Maryland Tue. night involved two men and one woman in what is called a double murder-suicide plot. Newsmax reports Sept. 4 that the Salisbury shooting left two men dead and one woman critically injured.
21-year-old Ryan Shallue shot Charles Abbott, 19, a former Salisbury University student, before turning the gun on himself. Abbott was later pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. The wounded female victim has been identified as Salisbury student Kristen Loetz, 20. She was transferred to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in critical, but stable condition.
Authorities do not believe Shallue was a Salisbury student, but an ex-boyfriend of Loetz's. Newsoxy reports that a semi-automatic handgun was used in the shootings at a home near Salisbury University. It appears to be a tragic "domestic dispute" case of a jealous ex.
The Salisbury community is understandably shaken by news of this violence that arose over a domestic dispute. Counselors will be on-hand to help those needing comfort and guidance at the university, Salisbury University president Janet Dudley-Eshbach said in a statement.
The Salisbury shooting happened just one week after classes began at the university.
