#AceNewsReport – Sept.06: The 33-year-old allegedly wounded an 11-year-old girl who underwent surgery for seven gunshot injuries, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told a news conference on Sunday local time.
#AceDailyNews says that a Florida gunman allegedly kills four strangers, including three-month-old baby in mother’s arms according to a Reuters report today …………Police said the accused, who had no connection to the victims, allegedly engaged in a shoot-out with officers before giving himself up.
He later allegedly tried to grab a police officer’s gun while being treated in the hospital for his own gunshot wound, before being subdued again, Sheriff Judd said.
A veteran of the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the suspect was a former sharpshooter and had been working as a bodyguard and a security guard.
His girlfriend of four years told investigators that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and occasional depression, Sheriff Judd said.
About a week ago, his mental health worsened and he told his girlfriend he had started speaking to God, Sheriff Judd said.
“He said at one point to our detectives, ‘They begged for their lives and I killed them anyway’,” Sheriff Judd said at a second news conference.
The suspect also allegedly told sheriff’s deputies he was high on methamphetamine, Sheriff Judd said:
Police said the accused first appeared, randomly, at the house where the shooting occurred on Saturday night, making nonsensical statements, but left by the time police had responded.
He allegedly returned early on Sunday morning, killing a 40-year-old man, the 33-year-old mother and her baby boy, Sheriff Judd said.
In the home next door, he also allegedly killed the 62-year-old mother of the woman, Sheriff Judd said.
“In addition to that, if he’s not evil enough, he shot and killed the family dog,” Sheriff Judd alleged.
Deputies responding to reports of two volleys of automatic gunfire arrived to find the suspect, unarmed, outside, wearing camouflage and body armor.
Sheriff Judd said the accused then allegedly went back inside and “we heard another volley, and a woman scream, and a baby whimper”.
A gunfight ensued before the accused came out, unarmed, and was arrested.
“It would have been nice if he would have come out with a gun … We would have shot him up a lot. But he didn’t because he was a coward,” Sheriff Judd said.
“When someone chooses to give up, we take them into custody, peacefully.”
