Monroe Co. Mother Fatally Shoots Son, Self

Authorities say a Monroe County mother fatally shot her 15-year-old son to death before committing suicide.

The Monroe County sheriff's office says the bodies of Parker Gilliland-Wampler and 46-year-old Carla Gilliland were found inside their burning home Thursday morning in Ellettsville.

The Monroe County coroner says each had been shot once.

The coroner ruled the teen's death a homicide and the mother's death a suicide.

Police say neighbors had heard Gilliland make comments about harming herself and her son.
