    I really don't have much to add, but Lebanon is my hometown, and seeing it in the news is so surreal! If people have questions about the area, I'll gladly try to answer!

    This is the local paper's article (although the comment section is usually an 'enter at your own risk' kind of place): http://www.ldnews.com/ci_13506791

    Husband killed Pa. gun advocate during video chat


    LEBANON, Pa. (AP) A soccer mom who was thrust into the national gun-rights debate after taking a loaded pistol to youth sports events was killed by her husband in a shooting witnessed online by her video chat partner, authorities said Friday.

    Scott Hain used his own gun to fire several shots into his 30-year-old wife, Meleanie, while her video chat was active and perhaps as she washed dishes in their kitchen, police said. Scott Hain, 33, later killed himself in an upstairs bedroom.

    --------------

    The online friend heard a shot and screams and turned to see Scott Hain firing, they said.

    He "observed Scott Hain standing over where Meleanie was and discharging a handgun several times," Lebanon Police Chief Daniel Wright said at a news conference. The man, who was described as a friend of both Scott and Meleanie Hain, called 911.

    Hi SisterMadly,

    Good to see you posting. Thank you for providing the link to the newspaper article.

    You are right by the way about the "comment" section. Jeesh. I felt like I needed riot gear just to enter.

    "Hain was in her kitchen talking with a friend via webcam just before her death, police said. Watch why Hain caused controversy
    The friend, who police will not name, was looking away from the computer screen when he heard a shot and a scream, police said. He turned back to the monitor, he told police, and no longer saw Meleanie Hain but instead saw Scott Hain firing several rounds from a handgun toward where his wife had been."
