Upon further investigation, police said they identified 70-year-old Michael Mueller as the suspect who fatally shot his brother. Court documents obtained by WXIX-TV allege Michael was visiting Mark Mueller’s home and became angry. Michael reportedly grabbed a gun and shot Mark nine times while he was lying in bed.
In their news release, police said Michael was driving a 2018 White Ford F-150, and they asked for the public’s help in finding him. In an update posted on June 25, police announced they found Michael’s vehicle at a local hotel. After a Lexington SWAT team reportedly tried negotiating with Michael, they forced entry and found him deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
