Shana Bagley was killed by James Cooper, who then killed himself, police say. HANOVER TWP. – A day after Shaundra Langille received temporary custody of her daughter, her ex-boyfriend came to her Hanover Village apartment to kill her. But, authorities said, James Cooper instead shot and killed a neighbor and wounded two other people before turning a gun on himself. Langille said she hid in her closet protecting her 9-month-old daughter Yasmine and the child of her neighbor, Shana Bagley, 25. Cooper shot Bagley, who was pronounced dead at the scene, said Luzerne County District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll. “It was an apparent murder-suicide,” said Musto Carroll. Cooper wounded Bagley’s husband Bradley, 26, and another neighbor Thomas Harris, no age available. They were taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. Both were listed in fair condition late Friday night, according to a nursing supervisor. Autopsies on Cooper and Bagley will be done on Sunday, said the district attorney. Cooper, 39, of Scranton, and Langille, 28, had been in Luzerne County Court on Thursday to deal with protection from abuse orders each one had taken out against the other. Under the order that was put into effect for a year, they were not to harm one another and were prevented from having personal contact. Musto Carroll said that in the case of a mother and father filing reciprocal PFAs and when children are involved, the mother usually gets custody.
