A Pittsburgh-area health club where a gunman killed three women and wounded nine others before shooting himself will reopen to members only on Saturday, and the general public on Monday. The Web site of the LA Fitness center in Collier Township also thanks the community for its support since 48-year-old George Sodini opened fire on Aug. 4.

The club has been closed since the shootings which killed 37-year-old Jody Billingsley, of Mount Lebanon; 49-year-old Elizabeth Gannon, of Green Tree; and 46-year-old Heidi Overmier, of Carnegie.

Two women wounded have filed notice that they intend to sue Sodini's estate for damages.

Sodini discussed his shooting plans in a blog published after his death, saying he couldn't form relationships with women.
