A correctional supervisor at the Patuxent Institution, who shot a lieutenant who was his girlfriend and then took his own life Sunday morning at the Jessup facility, used a gun taken from the prison arsenal, officials said.
Sgt. Gregory M. Shipley, a state prisons spokesman, said Lt. Eugene Kenneth Davis, 37, could have issued the gun to himself, since he was a supervisor.
Lieutenant Davis used the .38-caliber handgun to shoot and kill Lt. Vivian Zina Anderson, 38, as he arrived for his 8-to-4 shift. Officials said it appeared the shooting resulted from a domestic dispute.
