A woman killed in Midtown Atlanta Friday in what police say is an apparent murder-suicide was a Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker secretary, the firm’s Atlanta managing partner, Philip J. Marzetti, confirmed Friday evening. Police said a man shot and killed the woman and then turned the gun on himself outside the Bank of America Plaza, Atlanta’s tallest building.

Marzetti said that the secretary, Raven Buckley, had been with the firm for about a year. The shooter was not a firm employee, he said, but the employee of a local temporary agency who had been working for the last three months in the firm’s records center.
