KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Police have released the name of a man who killed himself after shooting and wounding his former girlfriend between the stadiums that are home to the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals.

The Kansas City Star reported that the shooter was 40-year-old Marcus L. Collins of Raytown.

He drove into the stadium Friday afternoon and apparently summoned his former girlfriend who was working as a parking lot attendant. Police said that when the 41-year-old woman approached, he shot at her several times. She tried to run, but was struck at least once in the abdomen.

Collins then shot himself. Police said he never got out of his car.

The woman survived, but police said she lost a kidney, her spleen, and parts of her pancreas and liver.
