MONTICELLO, Ind. (Aug. 5, 2014)— Three people were killed in a shooting at a furniture business just south of Monticello late Tuesday morning.
The shootings happened at approximately 11:30 a.m. in the parking lot outside Jordan Manufacturing, located at 1200 South Sixth Street.
The White County Coroner's Office confirmed one woman and two men were fatally shot.
When officers arrived, they found a man dead and lying on the ground near a car in the parking lot. Sheriff Patrick Shafer said the man suffered an apparent gunshot wound, and a handgun was found nearby.
The body of another man with apparent gunshot wounds was found in the driver's seat of that vehicle. A woman in the passenger's seat was transported to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The two men were pronounced dead at the scene.
The identities of the deceased are not being released at this time.
"Needless to say, it's a tragedy. It's a tragedy to those individuals who were involved. It's a tragedy to their family members," Shafer said. "It's a tragedy to the community in general."
Jordan Manufacturing tweeted they would be open Wednesday and counseling services would be available.
