A man shot his boss, and then killed himself at a north Dallas Office Building.
Dallas officers responded to a report of an active shooter in an office building along LBJ Freeway, near Schroeder Road, as workers evacuated from the building about 10:45 a.m. Monday.
When officers arrived on the building, they discovered that the possible shooter was inside a particular office in a meeting room. The officers then forced to utilize a shotgun to breach the front office door, according to authorities.
Officers found one man and one woman dead in the room.
It appears the man shot and killed the woman and then turned the gun on himself, police say.
Dallas police on Tuesday identified the shooter as 60-year-old Matthew Kempf of Frisco and his victim as her supervisor, 48-year-old Lana McAree Canada of Sulphur Springs.
Television footage showed a heavy police response, including a SWAT team, at the multi-story office building along an interstate. A broken window could be seen on one of the upper floors of the mirrored tower.
Workers of the building were evacuated and Hannah Greenhaw was one of them. Greenhaw was safely evacuated from the offices near a multi-level highway interchange known as the High Five.
Greenhaw told KXAS-TV that people from an office across the hall came over to warn them to lock the doors because there had been reports of an active shooter. Everyone in her office hurried to a corner in the back and turned out the lights, she said.
Armed tactical police officers then arrived, entered her office and told the workers to put their hands up, according to Greenhaw. Officers helped evacuate everyone from the building, she said, with some people allowed to use elevators.
“There was a few of us who couldn’t actually walk down 10 flights of stairs,” Greenhaw said.
