Share this post

Authorities say an investigation continues into a murder-suicide in Griffith Monday afternoon, where a 42-year-old woman was fatally shot by her estranged husband in the parking lot of Saint Mary's School in front of their teenage children, before the man turned the gun on himself minutes later near his home in Gary. Police say 55-year-old Remanard Castro shot Nina Castro as she was picking up their son from an after-school program, and that she was the only intended target. Griffith Police say the fatal shooting appears to have stemmed from a domestic dispute, but they're still trying to determine the specific cause.  A candlelight prayer vigil was held at St. Mary's Church in Griffith Tuesday night.
