Texas – A suspected murder-suicide in Texas on Saturday left eight individuals shot and a community in disbelief.
A man is accused of killing four people, one of them a kid, and seriously injuring three others at two separate crime scenes.
Approximately one hour after midnight, police got a 911 call saying that a man had murdered his family.
“You don’t expect it from a small town like this,” a neighbor said.
Connie Mimms, 61, and her stepfather, William Mimms, 68, are suspected to have been slain in Corsicana by Kevin Milazzo, who is considered the main suspect in the homicides.
Two other gunshot victims were found at the site and sent to a local hospital for treatment.
“I’ve been living here for 16 years and it’s scary. It’s just traumatizing to hear about,” said neighbor Ethan Lusk
“They’re just really good people. They didn’t deserve for this to happen to them,” said another neighbor, Kim Felix.
After that, according to police, Milazzo traveled to Frost, where he shot and murdered his son, Joshua Milazzo, 21, as well as a four-year-old kid who was the son of his ex-girlfriend.
An adult woman was also found there with a lot of gunshot wounds and taken to the hospital.
Using his car’s GPS, police were able to find Milazzo and shut off the engine remotely.
As SWAT team members approached his car, they found that he had shot himself in the head with a gun.
Although Milazzo passed away later in the hospital, the names and current conditions of the three surviving victims have not been revealed.
