Parker P.D. respond to apparent murder-suicide


The Parker Police Department responded to a ‘shots fired’ call early Friday morning and found two people with gunshot wounds to the head.

According to a press release by Sergeant Mike Bailey, when the officers arrived to the house on the 1500 Block of 15th Street, it was discovered that a female subject was lying on the floor of the residence with a gunshot wound to the head. Another male subject was found inside the house with a gunshot wound to the head. Both subjects succumbed to their injuries.

After an extensive investigation by Parker P.D., authorities determined that Sharon Griffin was shot by Robert J. Pittelli, who then shot himself with another gun.
