VANCOUVER, WASH. — A judge has set bail at $1 million for a woman suspected of shooting her former supervisor at the Veteran Affairs campus in Vancouver, Wash.

The Columbian reports Deborah Lennon, a former Veteran Affairs employee, appeared in Clark County Superior Court on Thursday on attempted murder and other charges.

The victim, 45-year-old Allen Bricker, had sought a protection order against Lennon, alleging she was stalking him with unwanted daily emails pursuing a romantic relationship.

A Clark County District Court commissioner issued two temporary protection orders in January 2013 but denied a permanent order in March because neither Bricker nor Lennon showed up at a hearing.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says Lennon went to Bricker’s office Tuesday and shot him twice in the chest. He remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Bricker is a VA regional financial officer and Lennon worked for him as an auditor.
