VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been shot and wounded inside a public health building in Clark County, marking the second workplace shooting in Vancouver, Wash., in two days.

Clark County sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Neiman says the shooting happened just before 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Center for Community Health, in a county building on the Department of Veterans Affairs campus.

A spokesman for the VA Medical Center in Portland, Ore., says the injured man is a Veterans Affairs employee.

Spokesman Daniel Herrigstad says the man’s injury is “non-life-threatening” but he had no other details.

Sheriff’s spokesman Neiman says the suspected shooter has been taken into custody.

Herrigstad said Tuesday evening that the VA campus “is now safe.”

On Monday, a paint company driver fatally shot a company manager and then killed himself at a Vancouver business park.
