The Associated Press

GRESHAM, Ore. — Authorities in Oregon say an off-duty Clackamas County sheriff's sergeant opened fire at a lounge, killing his wife and another woman before fatally shooting himself.

A third woman was in critical condition late Saturday.

Officers say the shooting Friday night at the M & M Restaurant and Lounge appears to be a domestic dispute. They did not release details.

Police say 46-year-old Jeffrey Grahn died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He worked for the agency for 15 years.

Authorities say Grahn shot and killed 53-year-old Kathleen Hoffmeister at the scene and also shot his wife, 47-year-old Charlotte Grahn, who died Saturday at a hospital.
