Photographs from inside a Covington law office that was targeted for attack by a suicidal man show walls and furniture riddled with bullet holes.

Covington police are speaking with family members of the man blamed for the attack, 47-year-old Roderick Rist of Slidell.

The St Tammany Coroner’s office says Rist shot and killed himself at the scene.

Only one person was inside the office at the time, a secretary, who hid and managed to avoid getting shot or spotted by the gunman.

According to Covington police, about 60 rounds were fired into the office on Tuesday.
