|Crime scene at Louisville Walmart|
In an apparent domestic dispute, a 46-year old woman, Michelle Hahn, came out of a Walmart in Louisville, Kentucky, and was putting groceries her car in the parking lot when a 44-year old male, Charles R. Fickentsher, shot her to death. He then fled the scene, but was found shortly after at a nearby park with a fatal, self-inflicted wound.
Fickentsher had a history of domestic violence.
From an article:
Jefferson County coroner Jack Arnold says 46-year-old Michelle Hahn was shot just after noon Saturday in the parking lot of the Walmart on Standiford Plaza Dr. in Hillview. Investigators say Hahn was getting into her car when she was gunned down.
"It appears that she had been in the Walmart and came out, possibly was putting some belongings in the vehicle. She was outside the vehicle at the time that she was shot," said LMPD spokesperson Carey Klain.
The killer fled the scene, but investigators tracked the suspect's car to McNeely Lake Park, some three miles from the crime scene. Inside, police found the suspected gunman dead. He had apparently shot himself.
The coroner has identified the suspect as 44-year-old Charles Fickentsher, of Okalona.
"It appears that this was a domestic situation, from the information that we are gathering.The individual did flee the scene, and we do have information that he is deceased, apparently a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It's very unfortunate," said Klain.
According to the coroner, Fickentsher and Hahn had been in a brief three-month-long relationship. He says Hahn had ended their relationship about three weeks ago, and that Fickentsher had possibly been stalking her since then.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
