A cross-dressing gunman from Indianapolis, Indiana, was sentenced Friday to 80 years in prison for ambushing his ex-girlfriend and her brother.

Michael Love, estimated to be in his 50s, was convicted of attempted murder for shooting Sultana Reed and Zach Guyton in 2015 as the two victims were loading children into their SUV to take them to daycare, according to the Daily Mail.

Love approached the two victims disguised as an elderly woman dressed in a wig, dress, and a mask, then gunned them down, WXIN reported.

The gunman struck Reed, his ex-girlfriend, three times, and shot her brother in the face once.

Before the attack, a judge had ordered Love to stay away from Reed, and the order was still in effect at the time of the attack.

Marion County prosecutor Terry Curry said the victims survived the shooting, and the children were unharmed.

“We are grateful that the two victims survived this dangerous attack and that the children who were present were not injured,” said Curry. “We commend the work of the investigators, cooperation of witnesses, and most importantly the courage of the victims who were essential in securing a significant sentence for this violent offender.”
