Suicide, Attempted Murder in Brockport

A man shot and seriously wounded a bartender late Wednesday night as she was trying to close the Army and Navy Club in Brockport, and then turned the gun on himself.

State police say a 20-year-old woman from Brockport was bartending and was trying to close the bar at just before midnight. 31-year-old Eric Carlson of Brockway got upset with her and they started arguing. As he was standing by the door while she was trying to get him to leave, he shot her multiple times with a pistol. As the woman was lying on the porch near the door, Carlson shot himself.

The woman was flown to UPMC Altoona for treatment. Carlson died at the scene.
