(Monaca) -- Authorities say a man shot and killed his estranged wife after luring her outside her job at a Penn State satellite campus by saying he had Christmas presents for their children.

Beaver County Coroner David Gabauer says 49-year-old Lesli Kelly, of Midland, died of multiple gunshot wounds in the attack yesterday just before 4:00 p.m. near the Penn State Beaver dining hall.

Gabauer says 52-year-old William Kelly, of Aliquippa, died of a gunshot wound to the head.

State police Lieutenant Eric Hermick says Kelly was carrying wrapped presents as he approached his former wife.

He says the man then opened fire on the unsuspecting woman, then turned the gun on himself.

Hermick says indications show there were domestic and child support issues and that the estranged husband was harassing her.
