VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities say a 45-year-old man has been shot and wounded inside a public health building in southwest Washington state and a woman taken into custody also is injured.

It's the second workplace shooting in Vancouver, Wash., in two days.

Clark County sheriff's Sgt. Fred Neiman says the shooting happened just before 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Center for Community Health on the Department of Veterans Affairs campus.

A spokesman for the VA Medical Center in Portland, Ore., says the injured man is a VA employee. Spokesman Daniel Herrigstad describes the man's injuries as "non-life-threatening."

Neiman calls the man's injuries "significant." He says the man and the 46-year-old woman taken into custody were transported to hospitals. He refused to discuss the nature of the woman's injury.

Neiman says officers aren't looking for other suspects.

On Monday, a paint company driver fatally shot a company manager and then killed himself at a Vancouver business park.
