The man who opened fire at a Glasgow hospital was identified Thursday as 42-year-old Roger Lynn Sellers.

While law enforcement authorities released the name of the gunman who killed one woman and injured two other people Saturday, they said no motive has been discovered and no other information about the incident will be released to the public until a coroner's inquest. No date for the inquest has been set.

Sellers was killed after he opened fire outside Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital shortly before 5 p.m. Saturday. Melissa Greenhagen, a 37-year-old part-time EMT, was hit in the chest and killed. Two other people were injured in the gunfire.

Sellers fled on foot and it is believed that he later died in a gunfight with officers. It remains unclear if Sellers took his own life. A Glasgow police officer was placed on administrative leave after the incident.

Sellers was identified by his fingerprints Tuesday, but authorities withheld his name until relatives could be notified. A search Wednesday night of Seller's residence in Glasgow provided authorities the information they needed to locate the relatives, according to a statement released today.

Investigators have found no connection between the shooter and the victims.

Glasgow Police Chief Lynn Erickson and Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier said in the release that no further information would be released.

"We understand the intense interest in this case, and appreciate the community's continued support and patience as our investigation continues," Erickson said.
