Man Convicted For Trying to Murder Girlfriend While Dressed as Elderly Woman

Michael Love fired off several shots and nearly killed his ex-girlfriend and her brother in July 2015.

INDIANAPOLIS--Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced yesterday that Michael Love has been convicted by a jury on two counts of Attempted Murder for a July 2015 shooting of two people outside of a home in the 300 block of North Eastern Avenue. 

On July 22, 2015, Love was disguised as an elderly woman when he approached his ex-girlfriend and her brother as they loaded five children into a vehicle to take them to daycare. Love approached the vehicle, pulled a handgun out of a plastic grocery bag and fired multiple shots at his ex-girlfriend striking her three times. As her brother attempted to come to her aid, Love fired the gun in his direction striking him once in the face.

Multiple witnesses reported seeing Love dressed in a brown dress and stockings knotted at the knee, wearing a wig and mask as he ran towards the vehicle before firing shots. At the time of the offense, Love had an active protective order to stay away from the female victim.

A sentencing hearing has been set for November 22.
