Shooting Suspect Had a Grudge, Police Say

May 11, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

A 62-year-old man accused in shootings at a prestigious Cleveland university held a grudge against an employee, authorities said.

Biswanath Halder, armed with two handguns, allegedly killed one person, wounded two others and held police at bay for seven hours Friday before he was captured.

Halder wore a bulletproof vest and a wig glued on "a kind of World War II Army helmet" as he walked the halls of Case Western Reserve University's Peter B. Lewis Building and fired hundreds of rounds, police Chief Edward Lohn said. Authorities said 93 people were trapped inside.
