    Updated:

    CENTER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - The victims of a murder-suicide at Penn State Beaver's campus were married at one time.

    Police say the shooter lured his ex-wife out to a parking lot Wednesday with promises of Christmas presents for their children, only to shoot and kill her before turning the gun on himself.

    The victim was Lesli Kelly, 49, who was a cook on campus.

    The suspected shooter, William Kelly, 52, was also pronounced dead at the scene.

    A university official was asked if there were concerns about the gunman getting on campus.

    "Our campus is a public place," said Jenifer Cushman, Penn State Beaver Chancellor. "People can gain access. Our police are quite good. It's an unfortunate tragedy."

    Police say they recovered two guns at the scene and found eight bullets.

    But they told our news partners at TribLIVE the snow has been slowing down the recovery of evidence.

    The campus is expected to reopen Thursday morning; however, finals are being pushed back until Friday to allow students to grieve.
