Mass Shooting at Kentucky House Party Kills Four People, Injures Three

The early hours of Saturday saw a mass shooting in Florence, Kentucky, which resulted in four casualties and three injuries. The gunman, not a victim, also died.

Florence resident Chase Garvey, 21, has been named as the shooter by the police. The police say he killed himself shortly after the incident and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Garvey is reportedly thought to have shot and killed four individuals and injured three others at a private property, according to Florence Police Chief Jeff Mallery, who announced during a news conference on Saturday.

At about 2:50 in the morning, at a house party, despite the officers’ best efforts, four victims were killed. According to Mallery, the wounded were anticipated to make a full recovery.

Everyone at the party knew who the culprit was—Garvey. Officials stated that he sped away in a car following the incident.

Officers chased him on US 42 and onto Hicks Pike. He allegedly shot himself while driving, which led to the collision.

The shooter passed away while being transferred to St. Elizabeth Florence Hospital.

Garvey acted alone, according to the first investigation by the Florence police.

The four victims were Shane Miller (20), Melisa Parrett (44), Delaney Eary (19), and Hayden Rybicki (20).

After losing her brother Shane in the shooting, Paris Miller recalled her brother as a “beautiful soul” who was known for his generosity and love of adventure. When he wasn’t spending time with his family, you could find him outside, maybe even fishing.

Eary was one of the four victims; Paris Miller knew her and praised her kind spirit and lovely smile. According to Paris Miller, Eary was the shooter’s ex-girlfriend.

The identities of the three casualties have remained unknown.

For Garvey, this is not an isolated incident with the police.

According to court documents, Garvey was given a five-year probationary term in April 2023 following his guilty plea to the crime of engaging in an unlawful transaction with a child.
