Arthur Harmon, Arizona shooter, found dead in car, committed suicide

The body of the man sought for an Arizona shooting was found Thursday, with evidence that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Police found the body of Arthur Douglas Harmon in Mesa. Authorities say the 70-year-old was the man who shot three people, one of whom died, in an office building in nearby Phoenix on Wednesday.

A 2013 Kia Optima that Harmon was seen fleeing in was found nearby, police said.

Harmon had gone to an office building on Tuesday to discuss “some type of litigation,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson told CNN affiliate KTVK.

Steve Singer, age 48, was the CEO of Fusion Contract Centers Inc. died Wednesday.

Police didn’t release the names of the wounded, but a Phoenix law firm, Osborn Maledon, said one of its lawyers, Mark Hummels, was among the wounded.

The firm said he “was representing a client in a mediation” when he was shot.

Former astronaut Mark Kelly referred to the shooting Wednesday as he testified on gun violence during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington.

Kelly and his wife, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, this month launched Americans for Responsible Solutions, which seeks to raise money to counter the influence of the gun lobby.

Two years ago, Giffords was shot in the head by a gunman in a parking lot in Tucson, Arizona.
