This is so sad.
Two People Dead In Murder-Suicide
Another instance of sad and senseless violence.
According to NY Daily News:
An Indianapolis Metropolitan police officer broke into his estranged wife’s home Thursday evening and shot her dead before turning the gun on himself, police said.
“It’s a very difficult day in the city of Indianapolis,” Mayor Greg Ballard said at a 9:30 p.m. press conference. “We have lost two of our own. This one hurts deeply. This one hurts very deeply.”
Sgt. Ryan Anders forced his way into the back door of Officer Kim Carmack’s home on Inishmore Way on the city’s west side around 5:40 p.m., police Chief Rick Hite said.
Neighbors called police after hearing gunshots, and a responding SWAT team found the two dead inside.
Carmack, a 21-year veteran of the city police force, had previously filed a restraining order against Anders, a 7-year veteran.
Anders was on administrative leave after allegations of domestic violence and was required to turn in his service weapon, Hite said.
“We had concerns about (Carmack),” Hite said of her rocky relationship with her estranged spouse. “We had concerns about both of them.”
