Woman in shooting still critical

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Jessica Baker was still listed in critical condition Tuesday at Hershey Medical Center, a spokesman said.

Baker was shot in the face with a high-powered rifle Sunday by her boyfriend, who turned the gun on himself after shooting her, according to police.

Gordon "Shawn" Howell, 27, of Mont Alto, Pa., died from a single gunshot wound to the head, police said.

Baker, 25, was hit in the neck and shoulder with one bullet fired by Howell, police said.

The two had been living together in an apartment at 315 Cleveland Ave., Waynesboro, for about a year, police said. Howell became angry with Baker this weekend when she told him to move out, police said.
