US: Four Killed, Three Others Injured In Mass Shooting In Kentucky

Date:

Kentucky: A tragic mass shooting at a birthday party in northern Kentucky resulted in four fatalities and three injuries inside a home on Saturday. The victims were celebrating a birthday when the incident occurred, CNN reported, citing police.

Officers discovered the seven victims suffering from gunshot wounds shortly before 3 am local time, following reports of an active shooter, according to Florence Police Department Chief Jeff Mallery, CNN reported. Chief Mallery identified the deceased victims as Hayden Rybicki (20), Delaney Eary (19), Melissa Parrett (44), and Shane Miller (20). Parrett, the homeowner, was hosting her son’s 21st birthday party when the tragic incident unfolded.

The Florence Police Department has identified 21-year-old Chase Garvey as a suspect. Garvey, who was not invited to the party but was known to the attendees, allegedly opened fire, resulting in the deaths of four individuals and injuring three others.

The injured victims, who were in critical but stable condition, were transported to a hospital in Cincinnati for treatment. Following the shooting, Garvey fled the scene and was later found in a crashed vehicle with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Authorities have stated that Garvey acted alone, and the motive for the shooting remains unclear.

According to officials, there is no ongoing threat to the people and an investigation is being conducted, according to CNN report. The shooting is the 277th mass shooting to take place in the US in 2024, CNN cited the data from the Gun Violence Archive. The archive considers a mass shooting as one in which four or more people are shot, which does not include the shooter.
