Victim and Suspect Identified In Garrard Shooting

Two people are dead after a shooting in Garrard County.

It happened Wednesday night on Dorton Drive off of US 27 in northern Garrard County.

That's where investigators say a Randy Faust shot his sister-in-law, Linda Faust and later turned the gun on himself. The victim's 17 year old daughter was inside the home at the time of the shootings and called 911.

Police responded to the scene and found the victim outside the home with a gunshot wound to her back. She was taken to Ephraim McDowell Hospital in Danville, where she died.

Police say when the suspect finally came out of the home, he confronted a deputy, who then fired at him. The man went back inside the home. Police later found the suspect dead. The teen was not hurt.

So far, police have not released a motive for the shooting.
