A mother-of-two was shot dead at a Michigan play center of the weekend as dozens of children, including two of her own, were forced to witness the horrific act.
What's more, police in Marysville believe the shooter was the husband of victim Cheryl Myny, as well as the father of her 4-year-old child.
As chaos descended on the Jump N Jam, a business similar to Chuck E. Cheese's that was owned by 32-year-old Myny, police arrived to find no sign of the shooter.
Investigators say they later found 34-year-old Matthew Pilarowski dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at their home.
"I think that's what bothers me most is that someone would do that in front of their own child," Marysville police Deputy Chief Ron Buckmaster told MLive.
According to authorities, Pilarowski and Myny had been in an argument earlier Saturday in the parking lot of the business after Myny stated her intention to move out of their home.
They couple had reportedly only been married since April. Police said their 4-year-old child witnessed the shooting, as did Myny's 9-year-old from a previous relationship.
"There was no one quite like her," a woman, Krystal Gomez, who identified herself as a lifelong friend of Myny's, said in a GoFundMe page created to help support the kids.
"I would like to help soften the financial burden during this extremely difficult time by asking for any financial contributions that you can afford," Gomez wrote. "The family will need a larger vehicle to accommodate four children, things to prepare the home, counseling, and much more."
