Murder investigation wrapping up




A Franklin woman closed herself in an upstairs room and called 911 after a shooter fired one last bullet that grazed her body.

Lianne Smith was upstairs, waiting for a neighbor and his two sons to help get 21-year-old Andrew Parish out of her house and away from her daughter. But as the neighbor and his sons went into the bedroom, Parish pulled a handgun and started shooting. After he shot three people in that bedroom, Parish fired one last shot down the upstairs hallway at Smith. The bullet just nicked her, and she closed herself into a room and called police.

By the time she got on the line with 911, Parish had shot a 19-year-old woman multiple times, killing her. Her neighbor also was bleeding badly from a neck wound. His two sons, one of whom had been shot in the face, escaped the house. As Smith talked to police, Parish was leaving the house. His ex-girlfriend, Smith’s daughter Maria Davis, was unharmed.
