Police say man killed teen, then self

CULVER, Ind. – Police said a man fatally shot a teenage family friend before killing himself at his home in a small northern Indiana town.

Culver police said an autopsy performed Tuesday found that 16-year-old Stephen Suthard was shot multiple times by 44-year-old Michael Price. WSBT-TV and WNDU-TV reported police said Price then killed himself with a single shot.

Police said the two were found shot by Price’s wife when she arrived home late Nov. 28.

Investigators haven’t given a possible motive for the shooting in the 1,300-person town about 30 miles south of South Bend.

Suthard was a sophomore at Culver Community High School.
