OSCEOLA MILLS, Pa. — Authorities in Pennsylvania say a man apparently shot and killed his girlfriend and her mother Friday morning before killing himself a short while later.

Clearfield County District Attorney Bill Shaw said 26-year-old Cody Bush apparently killed the two women and then shot himself, WJAC-TV in Johnstown reported .

The coroner’s office identified the women as Victoria Schultz, 21, and her mother, Beth Schultz, 47.

The Progress newspaper of Clearfield said a third person allegedly shot by Bush was taken to an Altoona hospital to undergo surgery.

State police were called to a home to investigate a domestic incident involving gunshots around 7:40 a.m. in Osceola Mills, about 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. They found the bodies there.

Police were telling neighbors to stay inside and had help from a helicopter in the search for a suspect before Bush’s body was found several hours later, according to WTAJ-TV in Altoona. Bush was found with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound near a state highway, Shaw said.

Court records show Bush was facing stalking and harassment charges stemming from an Oct. 29 incident.


This story has been corrected to show that one of the victims is the mother of the suspect’s girlfriend, not the suspect’s mother.
