VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A manager and employee at Benjamin Moore Paint were found dead in an apparent workplace murder-suicide in Vancouver on Monday.

Police were called to the business park at 1800 W. Fourth Plain Blvd. at 11:30 a.m. on reports of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they located the body of Ryan Momeny, 45, a manager at Benjamin Moore Paint Co., in front of the business.

Another man was then found dead inside a car in the parking lot. He was identified as Robert Brown, 64, a driver for Benjamin Moore Paint, according to police.

Officers said he had what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Momeny's cousin, Lyman Momeny, said Ryan Momeny's wife posted on her husband's Facebook page about his death.

"I think you always think that stuff just happens to other people," said Lyman Momeny about the shock he felt over his cousin's death. "Ryan was a very good man and had a very wide circle of friends."

An employee told Fox 12 the Benjamin Moore warehouse distributes paint to local stores. He said the warehouse only has a few employees during the winter months, and everyone always seemed to get along well.

"Everybody's friendly in my warehouse," said employee Sergay Sizman.

The Vancouver Police Department Major Crimes Team is continuing to investigate. Investigators said there are no outstanding suspects related to this case.

No one else was hurt in the shooting. Fruit Valley Elementary School was placed on a brief lockdown while police were in the area.
