Victim in Vancouver, Wash., shooting had sought protection

The Associated Press

VANCOUVER, Wash. — The man wounded at a Veterans Affairs office in Vancouver had sought a restraining order last year against the former co-worker accused of shooting him.

According to court documents, Allen Bricker said Deborah Lennon was stalking him with unwanted daily emails pursuing a romantic relationship.

The Columbian reports a Clark County District court commissioner issued two temporary protection orders in January 2013 but denied a permanent order in March because neither showed up at a hearing.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says Lennon went to Bricker’s office Tuesday and shot him twice in the chest. He remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Lennon is due in court Thursday, facing attempted murder and assault charges.

Bricker is a VA regional financial officer and Lennon worked for him as an auditor.
