Harrison Township, Pa. – Authorities have identified the shooting suspect who took his own life after a double shooting in Natrona Heights late Monday night as Eddie Layne, who was temporarily staying at the Sheldon Park Complex.

Two female victims were shot and transported to the hospital. One of the victims is a 41 year-old mother who is in critical condition and the second victim is her 16 year-old daughter who is in stable condition.

Witnesses told police Layne became agitated Monday night and believed his neighbors were spying on him. A SWAT team from Allegheny County was called to the scene to assist Harrison Township Police. Layne was later found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after barricading himself in a neighbors apartment.

Police and County Detectives are continuing their investigation.
