Police: Shooter fixated on wife

The man who police say fatally shot his estranged wife’s friend in a Greenwood apartment recently had become fixated on her and the coming end to a marriage that lasted two decades, according to police.

Kevin Sharrett had been upset that his estranged wife, Michelle Sharrett, was seeing someone else and that their divorce was set to be finalized in about a month, Greenwood Police Department Assistant Chief Matt Fillenwarth said.

Police believe that on Feb. 13 Sharrett shot Steven Lively, 47, Indianapolis, who was at Michelle Sharrett’s apartment and had known her for about three weeks, Fillenwarth said. He then shot himself during or shortly after a high-speed chase with police in southwestern Marion County, after his daughter told police he was in the area.

Sharrett told his daughter that he had done something terrible and was going to join her grandparents, who are deceased, Fillenwarth said.
