Before heading to his ex-girlfriend’s house, he already had written a suicide note and left it in his bedroom, brought a handgun and assault rifle and put extra ammunition in his car, police said.
When Andrew J. Parish, 21, got to the home in Franklin’s Heritage subdivision Monday evening, the fight between him and his ex-girlfriend grew so heated that her 12-year-old brother ran across the street to get help. When a neighbor and his adult sons came over to try to get Parish to leave, he fired several shots from a handgun.
Four people were shot, but his ex-girlfriend wasn’t one of them. Her mother and a neighbor were wounded, her roommate was killed, and a neighbor who had come to help died hours later at an Indianapolis hospital.
