A publicist for his law firm said Friday that the 43-year-old Hummels died after being placed on life support. He was the second of three people hit by gunfire to die from in the attack.

Police say the gunman — 70-year-old Arthur Douglas Harmon — was found dead early Thursday in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound

Hummels covered local and state government for the newspaper in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
