Four dead including baby killed in mother’s arms as 11-year-old girl fights for life – .


Four people, including a baby who died in her mother’s arms, were killed in a shootout, with an 11-year-old girl shot multiple times.
Police were called on Saturday night, with a woman stating that a suspicious man had come to the house and told her God told her to speak to one of his daughters.

Officers arrived at the home in Florida, United States, six minutes later, but were unable to locate the man or his vehicle.

At around 4.30 am the next morning, an officer nearby reported hearing gunshots, and officers arrived to find a man who they said was “fully equipped with body armor.”

Officers saw the man running inside the family home as they approached.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said: “We heard another robbery [of gunfire], and a woman cries and a baby moans.

“Our lieutenant tried to break into the house and it was barricaded. “

The lieutenant ran to the back of the house and started a shootout with the suspect.

The suspect eventually walked out of the house with his hands in the air and was injured by at least one gunshot, before being taken into custody, Sheriff Judd said.

He attempted to take an officer’s gun while being treated by emergency medical responders, but was subdued.

He added: “We found a man, a woman and a baby in the mother’s arms all slaughtered.

“We went to the house just behind and found another shot dead woman. “

An 11-year-old girl was shot several times in the exchange and rushed to Tampa General Hospital.

Investigators are still working to determine the suspect’s relationship to the victims and the motive for the shooting.

He allegedly told detectives he was using drugs before the rampage.
