DEERFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A 17-year-old girl has been shot to death outside a pet care shop in Deerfield by her former boyfriend, who later killed himself.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found Amanda Borsos, of Morrow, with a gunshot wound just after 4 p.m. Wednesday in a dog exercise area. She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. She would have been a junior at Little Miami High School.

The SWAT team found her ex-boyfriend, 18-year-old Troy Penn, barricaded in his home nearby. Authorities say he killed himself at around 5:50 p.m. before SWAT team negotiators could be called in. He would have been a senior at Kings High School. A shotgun was found beside Penn. He reportedly was upset over the couple’s breakup.
