Witnesses said Michael Love was dressed as an elderly woman, wearing a brown dress, stockings, a wig and a mask, when he approached a Sultanna Reed and Zach Guyton as they loaded children in an SUV to go to day care. 

Love approached the vehicle, pulled a handgun out of a plastic grocery bag and fired multiple shots at Reed, his ex-girlfriend, striking her three times. Her brother tried to come to her aid and Love shot him once in the face.  

At the time of the attack, there was a protective order in place intended to prevent Love from approaching his ex-girlfriend.  

The two victims were rushed to a hospital in critical condition but survived. Love was arrested soon after.

Love was found guilty on Nov. 1 and sentenced Friday to 80 years in the Indiana Department of Correction.
