A husband shot his wife and another man in the motel room they were sharing before turning the gun on himself early Sunday morning, police say.
The York County Coroner’s Office says 35-year-old Donnell Graham fatally shot his wife, Shaquana Graham and another man in a room at the Quality Inn in Springettsbury Township.
The 33-year-old woman was found shot in the head while the other man, 25-year-old Kristopher Pittman, had been killed by gunshots to the chest.

Darryl Schock, a maintenance and security worker at the motel, told The York Daily Record that at least one of the individuals had checked into the room around 3 a.m.
Schock said he was in the breakfast room around 9 a.m. when the guest staying in the room next to the one where the shooting occurred reported hearing gunshots.
The guest noted they heard five shots, followed by a pause, which was followed by three more shots before hearing silence.
They also stated they had seen a hole in the glass on the outside of the building, which Schock said he went to investigate.
‘I seen a two-inch opening through the glass pane,’ said Schock. ‘At that time I immediately called 911.’
The motel is located near the city of York in central Pennsylvania, where the Grahams were from. Pittman was a resident of Baltimore.
Perry Patel, the owner of the Quality Inn, told the Daily Record he couldn’t recall another shooting or similar incident in the 15 years he’s operated the business.
‘It’s sad to hear something like that,’ he said.
