A distraught 11-year-old girl frantically called 911 as her mother was being murdered by her stepdad, according to Indiana authorities.
Suspect Mac Lewis blasted Elizabeth Bennett Lewis in front of her daughter and the child’s 10-year-old friend at the family’s Sellersburg home Friday, according to the Clarks County Sheriff’s Office.
The two kids were “in close proximity” when Lewis was shooting the gun, authorities said.
“Multiple gunshots were found throughout several rooms and areas in the residence,” according to a news release from the sheriff’s office. “The initial 911 caller of this incident was Ms. Lewis’s child; she had called while Mac Lewis was still actively firing his gun throughout the house and ultimately shooting and killing her mother.”
When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found Bennett Lewis, who worked as a nurse, dead with multiple gunshot wounds, police said.
