MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The mother of a Morgantown man suspected of killing five people and injuring two more before committing suicide says he'd long struggled with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Tammy Konchesky tells the Dominion Post that her 22-year-old son, Shayne Riggleman, wasn't taking his medications. But she doesn't know why he did what police allege.
Police say he shot five people in a rural home near Morgantown. The victims include a 17-year-old who a family friend says had begun dating Riggleman's ex-girlfriend.
Riggleman also allegedly ran down a Pennsylvania woman and shot a West Virginia gas station attendant, seriously injuring both, before fleeing to Kentucky and taking his own life.
Konchesky says she understands friends of the victims are angry. She says she's angry, too.
Konchesky wasn't answering her phone Thursday.
