Barrage of Violence: Man Stabs Psychologist in Her Office

A man armed with a suitcase full of knives fatally stabbed and slashed a well-known psychologist in her office.

Originally, the assailant had arrived at the offices, about 8 p.m. on Tuesday, asking to visit Dr. Kent T. Shinbach, 70, a psychiatrist there, the police said.

But at some point he disappeared inside the office of another counselor there, Kathryn Faughey, 56, the police said.

There, he unleashed a barrage of violence, fatally stabbing Dr. Faughey. At some point, when Dr. Shinbach heard the attack and went to the office of his colleague, the assailant turned on him and Dr. Shinbach was seriously injured, officials said.
