Police arrived two minutes after the first 911 call and ended up exchanging gunfire with the gunman.
He was beaten and pronounced dead at the hospital. No one else was injured.
A possible motive has not yet been revealed.
According to public records, Ned had a criminal history that included convictions for intoxication manslaughter, drug possession and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
Naomi Rodgers, an 18-year-old camp counselor who works at the lodge, told NBC 5 Monday that the gunman came to her room and fired through her door, shattering glass.
“He said if we didn’t let him see who she wanted to see, he would shoot the place down,” she Rodgers said. “The glass started to fall and I started praying because that was all I could do. I know what happened in Uvalde… and I thought this can’t happen. Not today. Not today.”
