Saturday morning, officers responded to the Marriott Hotel located in the 4600 block of Southport Crossings Drive on a report of a person shot. When they arrived, they found Sarah McKinney, 23, with multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to the hospital in critical, but stable condition. 

Shortly after, officers responded to the 2900 block of Carson Drive for a person shot. When they arrived, they found Darryl Nichols, 37, of Indianapolis with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the hospital in critical, but stable condition. 

According to IMPD, detectives later learned that the suspect, Paul Thompson, 38, walked into the Marriott Hotel just before 10:00 a.m. and found McKinney in the kitchen area on the first floor and allegedly shot her multiple times. He then allegedly went to the home on Carson Drive and shot Nichols multiple times.

According to police, Thompson and McKinney, who were in the process of breaking up, have two children together. McKinney had recently filed an order of protection against Thompson.

"An unfortunate fact is that most domestic violence incidents are never reported," Kelly McBride Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Network said in a press release.

"Local law enforcement has a number of helpful tools to initiate effective and meaningful help services. Call Connect to Help at 211 to be connected to an advocate who can assist with safety planning or alternatively 9-1-1 if it's an emergency."
