Gunman’s past held more violence, missed red flags

INDIANAPOLIS — A report obtained by IndyStar after a public records fight with Indianapolis police shows the alleged gunman Brandon Hole, who killed eight people at a FedEx facility in April, was accused of punching his mother in the face and stabbing her with a table knife in 2013.

The police report raises new questions about why prosecutors did not present Hole’s violent past to a judge and argue for his gun rights to be suspended when police detained Hole in March 2020. Hole’s mother told police that month he was threatening suicide-by-cop, leading officers to confiscate a shotgun from him.
