Man kills woman, then himself, in Sandusky



Published: Sat, July 28, 2007 @ 3:51 p.m.

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Police say a man shot his girlfriend and then killed himself on a Lake Erie beach Friday after an officer tried to question the couple.

Sandusky police say the officer approached the couple sitting near the shoreline about 10:30 p.m. because they were in Lions Park after it had closed.

As the officer tried to talk to the couple, Larry Barnett Jr., 25, turned and shot his girlfriend, Rachelle Baskey, 24, in the head, then shot himself, according to Sandusky police.

Police say the couple was apparently homeless and recently unemployed. After the shooting, medical personnel took the two to Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky. The hospital would not comment.
