BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities say a 62-year-old man suspected of shooting a woman to death at a vehicle repair shop in Broomfield has been arrested.

The Daily Camera tells us police were called to the East of Sweden Saab repair shop at about 2:30 p.m. Friday and found the woman with multiple gunshot wounds. The woman, identified as Mary McGrath, of Broomfield, was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Family spokesman Aaron Gagne says McGrath's relatives are declining to comment because they have not had time to process the death.

A bomb squad was called to the scene shortly after the suspect's arrest because witnesses indicated there could be bomb in his car. Police say a "suspicious device from the suspect's vehicle" was detonated, but they did not elaborate.

McGrath worked at the repair shop.
