PHILIPSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania State Police say the gunman in a supermarket shooting is a retired state trooper, and the woman he shot before killing himself was his wife.

A woman who said she spoke with witnesses from inside the store told reporters she believes the victim is her sister, who had a restraining order against her husband.
