Fatal Shooting Suspect Reveals Motive

The apparent motive has been revealed in the fatal shooting of a Michigan City woman while she was driving her vehicle.


Robert Curry, 25, also of Michigan City, is charged in La Porte Superior Court 1 with murder. He's currently held in the La Porte County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.


Kylie McKee, 26, was found without a pulse in her vehicle early Sunday in the area of Springland and Roeske Avenues.


The investigation shows that after meeting at a bar on the city's north side, McKee and a man were in separate vehicles heading to his residence.


Curry and his brother were apparently inside a truck parked in front of a home when the car driven by McKee hit the truck, police said. The evidence suggests McKee didn't stop.


Court documents revealed that Curry got out, looked at the damage, and then went after the fleeing driver. Curry told investigators he located the car and pulled in front of it, then approached the woman.


According to court documents, Curry told police he questioned her about striking his truck when she began driving off and nearly hit him.


Curry pulled out a gun and fired at her. Her car, with loud music playing, traveled a short distance before leaving the roadway and stopping in a grassy area.


Authorities said ten gunshots were fired, and McKee was struck by two of the .22 caliber rounds.


Evidence gathered from the investigation two days later led to Curry who after shooting parked the truck behind a house in the 300 block of Springfield Avenue. A box of .22 caliber ammunition was located in the truck.


Curry could face anywhere from a 45 to 65-year sentence.
