Fort Wayne police say a man who shot two women at a Fort Wayne beauty college before turning the gun on himself was upset that one of the women would not date him.

Police spokesman Michael Joyner told a news conference Tuesday that 24-year-old Davion D. Brown entered Ravenscroft Beauty College on Monday evening carrying a backpack and found that woman, 29-year-old Patricia Ann Hahn of Fort Wayne, in a break room and began shooting with a .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun, striking her as many as nine times.

Police says Hahn is hospitalized in stable condition.

Joyner says investigators believe Hahn tried to protect the second woman, 20-year-old Alyssa L. Spade of Fort Wayne. Spade suffered a graze wound.

Joyner says officers found Brown dead from a self-inflict gunshot wound.

Authorities have identified the two women who were shot at a Fort Wayne beauty college.

Fort Wayne police said Tuesday that 29-year-old Patricia Ann Hahn is hospitalized in critical condition following the shooting Monday night at Ravenscroft Beauty College. They say the other woman, 20-year-old Alyssa L. Spade of Fort Wayne, has been released from a hospital.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office has identified the gunman as 24-year-old Davion D. Brown of Fort Wayne. It has ruled his death a suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Indiana Department of Correction’s website says Brown was paroled in April 2014 after serving 16½ months for a robbery conviction.
