SARASOTA, Fla. - Sarasota County investigators identified the woman they said walked into a veterinary hospital and fatally shot another woman and then took her own life.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said 38-year-old Morgan Kronstadt, a former employee at KindVet of Sarasota Urgent Care, was the suspected shooter behind the Wednesday evening's murder-suicide.
Deputies swarmed the Sarasota veterinary hospital after a 911 call reported a possible shooter inside the building. Officials said the shooter was pronounced dead at the scene while the other woman was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital where she later died.

Just minutes before the shooting happened just after 5 p.m., Kronstadt reportedly made a post on KindVet's Facebook page, taking responsibility for what was about to happen at the vet hospital.
In the since-deleted post, she claimed to be bipolar and said she was bullied at work, saying: "What is happening is solely based on my experience of bullying…that has been at all-time high recently."
Sarasota County deputies have not yet named the other woman who was shot and killed due to Marsy's Law.
