A suicidal man who was briefly hospitalized, returned home and fatally shot his wife, her father and her stepmother before killing himself.
Officers responding to a report of gunshots on Monday afternoon found the four people dead in the bedroom of a home in Murfreesboro in Rutherford County.
As reported by NY Post, Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh said Sean Ganey shot his wife, Cassidy Ganey; her father, Kenny Adair; her stepmother, Shelly Lorenz-Adair; and then himself. A child was left unharmed. Deputies went to the home on Friday because of a call about a suicide threat. The sheriff said officers took Sean Ganey to a hospital and removed weapons from the home.
“The events that led to this I think are very tragic,” he said. “It’s a terrible outcome to a situation that we see far too often. It’s something that we don’t like to see.”
It’s unclear how Ganey obtained the weapons that he used in the killings.
Authorities said they were trying to piece together the sequence of events that led to the fatal shootings. They said marital issues might be to blame.
“We do think that there may have been a possibility of a divorce or at least comment of a divorce that may have led to this,” the sheriff said.
