The suspect was identified as 23-year-old Shavell Jordan Jones, who was admitted to a local hospital after apparently shooting himself in the head after committing the murders.
Three women and a four-year-old girl were found dead this Friday in a house in Orlando, in central Florida, due to shots allegedly fired by the sentimental partner of one of the victims, local police reported.
The suspect was identified as 23-year-old Shavell Jordan Jones, who was admitted to a local hospital after apparently shooting himself in the head after committing the murders, Orange County Sheriff John Mina said at a news conference.
The officer reported that, after an alert call around 4:00 a.m. On Friday, a group of agents arrived at the house and inside they found the lifeless bodies of the four victims, in addition to an injured woman, and two other minors, four and six years old, hidden and unharmed, the police said.
The injured woman managed to alert a neighbor, who was the one who called 911 to report the incident, Mina said.
The events began when Jones and his partner had an argument at night, during which the suspect removed some of his belongings from the home and put them in a vehicle.
According to the police account, the suspect returned to the house and opened fire on the women, including the 49-year-old matriarch of the family and the grandmother of the minor, both killed by the shots.
The other two fatalities are two women aged 29 and 28, the first of whom was the suspect’s romantic partner.
Jones has no criminal record, other than not going to court for a misdemeanor two years ago, according to the sheriff. He added that the agents had not gone to that house before due to any previous complaint.
