A county library employee who apparently committed suicide inside a Toyota Corolla parked in a local high school lot has been identified.
Sun City resident Roggena Hunsaker, 59, was pronounced dead at 8:04 a.m. today, according to the Riverside County Coroner’s Office.
She was found at about 7:44 a.m. in the parking lot of Paloma Valley High School in Menifee with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Albert Martinez.
Hunsaker worked at Paloma Valley Community Library, 31375 Bradley Road, which is located in the school’s parking lot, according to Jonathan Greenberg, superintendent of Perris Union High School District.
There were no other injuries reported today, and there was no threat to students or school staff, Menifee Union School District spokeswoman Betti Cadmus confirmed.
Greenberg said counseling was being provided for students, including those who may have seen the suicide aftermath.
The campus was on lockdown during the investigation as a precautionary measure, Greenberg added.
