Law firm: Phoenix lawyer dies from shooting wounds
Fox News - about 4 years
A lawyer wounded in this week's Phoenix office shooting has died. Mark Hummels had been on life support at a Phoenix hospital after Wednesday morning's shooting that killed a Scottsdale-based company's CEO. His law firm's publicist, Athia Hardt, says Hummels died Thursday night. Police say the gunman — 70-year-old Arthur Douglas Harmon — was found dead early Thursday in Mesa from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. They say Harmon opened fire at the end of a mediation session over a lawsuit he filed last April. A woman also was shot, but her injuries were not life-threatening. The 43-year-old Hummels worked with the Phoenix law firm Osborn Maledon and focused on business disputes, real estate litigation and malpractice defense.
