Fort Wayne Bus Shooter Killed by Sniper Fire

An end has come to yesterday’s story of a man who pulled a woman off of a bus in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and shot her about 25 feet away, killing her.  He took the 3 year old little girl that was with her and barricaded himself inside a home.

Sniper fire killed the suspect, and a police officer carried the child out of a house in Fort Wayne about 4:30 p.m., and police announced soon after that the suspect, 45-year-old Kenneth Knight, was indeed dead.

Police believed the woman was murdered by someone whom she knew.  The relationship between 49-year-old Jacqueline Bouvier Hardy and Knight is unknown.  Police spokeswoman Raquel Foster said a protective order had been filed against Knight in the past few days, but she did not say who had requested the order.

After Knight fled the scene and barricaded himself, it was just a few hours later that he was killed by a single shot from a police sharpshooter.

Darnell Glaspie, who has lived in a nearby house for about four months, said he watched from his window as the standoff reached its climax.

“They’re going in right now. They were all in the front yard, I heard a big boom and then I saw a bunch of them run up there in the house. I just saw about eight of them go up there in the house,” Glaspie told The Associated Press by telephone.
