Sheriff: Man Shoots Wife, Then Himself In Parking Lot

Two people are dead after a shooting outside a Harrison County hospital.

It happened at around 11:00 Tuesday morning at Harrison Memorial Hospital in Cynthiana.

Kim Niman died at the scene from a gunshot wound. Her husband, Frederick Niman, was airlifted from the scene with a gunshot wound. He later died from his injuries.

Cynthiana police officers say they're investigating the shooting as a possible domestic situation, but the Harrison County Sheriff tells 27 NEWSFIRST this was a case of murder-suicide.

We're told Frederick Niman worked at the hospital.

Police say Kim Niman's body was sent to Frankfort for an autopsy that will be conducted on Wednesday.
