INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 18, 2014)– The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is mourning the loss of two officers in an apparent murder-suicide.

Investigators believe Sergeant Ryan Anders forced his way into the home of his ex-wife, Officer Kimberlee Carmack. Officers found the two shot to death Thursday inside Carmack’s home. Police Chief Rick Hite said it appears to have been a murder-suicide.

Hite also said every resource would be made available to officers as they grieve. The Fraternal Order of Police is also offering support services at this time.

“We have members of the agency who known these people intimately,” said Hite. “We have the chaplains out making sure our rank and file feel that someone cares about them.”

Anders had been with the department for nine years. Carmack was a 20-year veteran of the force.
