Pa. gunman left $225,000 to university

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A gunman who committed suicide after killing three women and wounding nine others at a Pittsburgh-area health club wanted to leave his estimated $225,000 estate to the University of Pittsburgh. Court papers were filed Friday by estate executor Michael Sodini. He is the brother of 48-year-old George Sodini, who shot the 12 women Aug. 4 inside an LA Fitness club. A legal expert told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the bequest is likely moot, because Sodini's estate would probably be used to pay damages in any lawsuits that are filed. The university said late Tuesday it wouldn't accept the money even if it were available.
