BLAINE, Wash. (AP) - The Canadian border guard wounded at the Peace Arch Crossing has been identified.
An Ontario provincial police sergeant says Lori Bowcock worked as a civilian dispatcher at police headquarters in London, Ontario, until last spring.
Bowcock was shot in the neck in her booth and remains in stable condition.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police say she was wounded by a man entering Canada in a van with Washington license plates. Cpl. Bert Paquet says he then died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
British Columbia's Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is treating the case as an attempted murder.
The border crossing about 100 miles north of Seattle has been closed since the shooting 2 p.m. Tuesday, and the estimated reopening is 4 p.m. Wednesday.
