WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a man angry over money shot a South Florida medical office manager and her boyfriend before killing himself at the clinic where the woman worked.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that 69-year-old Jose Vega went to the Doctor's Choice Medical Center Thursday for an appointment with 49-year-old Ana Villa and 38-year-old Luis Gonzalez. The couple had hired Vega to do some work at their home, and Vega wanted more money.

Deputies say the couple refused, and Vega shot and killed Gonzalez. When Vega went to shoot Villa, she managed to raise her hand for some protection. Vega then fatally shot himself.
