Noblesville widow shares struggle after losing husband in Body Gear clothing store shooting

INDIANAPOLIS - The widow of a man who was fatally shot inside a northeast Indianapolis clothing store spoke with RTV6 about her emotional struggle as police search for more suspects.

Sunday afternoon Indianapolis Metro Police Department officers were investigating multiple shootings at the Body Gear clothing store in the 2800 block of East 38th Street.

When officers arrived, they found two people inside suffering from gunshot wounds. One, a man, had suffered a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was identified as 36-year-old Ho Lee, of Noblesville. He was transported to Eskenazi Health in critical condition where he later died.

Shana Oh, Lee's wife, said she's having a hard time coming to terms with the loss of her husband.

"I cannot admit it has happened to my husband. It's just hard," Oh said. "The guy shot him three times in his head. Not only once, three times in his head."

Oh said the hardest part is trying to explain the death to her 10-year-old and 7-year-old children who are now without a father.

"I don't know how to explain that his dad got shot in his head. It's unexplainable. I want to ask (the shooters) why. Why? We were just there visiting. Why? How could this happen?" Oh said.

Monday morning IMPD arrested Deaundre Graves, 18, and an unidentified 17-year-old on preliminary charges of murder and robbery.
