INDIANAPOLIS - On Sunday, family and friends mourned the loss of a grandmother and granddaughter – both killed Friday in their own home.
Mourners were looking for understanding and peace just days after 28-year-old Inity Morrow and her grandmother, 84-year-old Julia Morrow, were shot and killed by Inity's boyfriend, identified as 36-year-old Quintico Goolsby.
"For something like this to happen in this area … it's really disturbing," said Frank Alexander, pastor of the Oasis of Hope Baptist Church. "Most of the people have been here a good while, and those kinds of things really devastate the community."
The killings happened on Dearborn Street, just a few doors down from the church. Police said the women knew they were in trouble and called 911 for help after Goolsby showed up.
When IMPD Officer Gregory Milburn arrived at the house, he exchanged gunfire with Goolsby, killing him.
Milburn was hit in his bulletproof vest but was not seriously injured.
When officers entered the home, they found both Morrows dead.
"[Julia] was a God-fearing woman and she also cared for anyone that was sometimes on the street," said Julia's sister Rose Anderson. "She visited the sick, gave to the poor."
The Morrows loved ones said they are still finalizing funeral arrangements for the two women.
