In what appears to be a murder-suicide, a woman and the suspected shooter have tragically lost their lives at a Sarasota veterinary clinic, as reported by law enforcement.
Deputies were dispatched shortly after 5 p.m. on Wednesday to the KindVet of Sarasota Urgent Care at 3900 Clark Road, in response to reports of gunfire, stated Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Evan Keats.
Upon arrival, law enforcement found two women at the scene—the suspect and the victim, as Keats explained.
One of them was transported to a nearby hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. It is believed that the shooter first targeted the woman before taking her own life.
Morgan Kronstadt identified as the shooter in apparent murder-suicide shooting at KindVet of Sarasota Urgent Care.
At the time of the incident, three individuals were inside the animal hospital, Keats mentioned, emphasizing that there were no other reported injuries.
Sources confirm to Channel3 NOW, Dr. Shawn Callahan identified as the victim.
The sheriff’s office was made aware, after the shooting, of a social media post that is potentially connected to the incident. This is an ongoing criminal investigation. There is no immediate threat or danger to the community.
This is a developing story that will be updated when more information is available.
