80-Year-Old Suspect in Mill Valley Shooting Found Dead

MILL VALLEY — Authorities said they found an 80-year-old suspect dead of a gunshot wound Thursday in a Northern California apartment where he fled after two people were shot and wounded.

The attack occurred in Mill Valley, about 14 miles (23 kilometers) north of San Francisco, Marin County sheriff’s Sgt. Brenton Schneider said.
