The children are aware that Kyle Carruth shot and killed their father in front of their mother, step-brother, and myself. Christinaâ€™s decision to allow either of these children to be in Kyle Carruthâ€™s presence has caused, and continues to cause, significant impairment of their emotional well-being. The oldest child has expressed to me that he blames his mother for the shooting, and that he will run away from home if he sees Kyle there again.
Statement from wife of now deceased man:
â€œI recorded the shooting on my cell phone. During this entire incident, I didnâ€™t realize that Kyle Carruth was holding and brandishing an actual firearm. At that time, I thought that it was some type of stun-gun or paintball gun. Even when Kyle Carruth fired the shots, the sound was very muffled and not as loud as I know firearms to be. It wasnâ€™t until I got to Chad on the ground that I realized that he had in fact been shot and that the weapon held by Kyle Carruth was a firearm
