Returning to the Florida murder scene, the gunman murders a reporter and a child.
Authorities claim that a man suspected of killing a lady in Florida on Wednesday returned to the scene of the crime hours later and shot and killed a television reporter and a nine-year-old girl.
Sheriff John Mina of Orange County stated that Keith Melvin Moses, age 19, had been arrested and was thought to be responsible for the shootings.
West of Orlando in central Florida’s Pine Hills, a suburb, the attacks took place. The sheriff’s office reported that a 20-year-old lady was killed there at around 11am yesterday (4pm Irish time).
Hours later, a team from Spectrum News 13 showed up to cover the murder, according to Mina, who spoke at a press conference that evening.
The reporter was killed and the camera operator was injured when Moses opened fire on them as they were standing next to their vehicle just after 4pm (9pm Irish time), the sheriff continued.
The shooter then went inside an adjacent house and shot a woman and her daughter, who was nine years old.
The girl and the Spectrum News 13 reporter died, despite the fact that the wounded were all rushed to the hospital, according to Mina.
Mina stated “we have detained the person believed to be responsible for the murder this morning, as well as the shootings this afternoon”
The suspect, he continued, had a “lengthy criminal history” that included “gun charges, aggravated battery and assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and grand theft charges”.
The sheriff claimed that despite the detainee knowing the woman who was killed in the morning, he was unrelated to the other victims.
None of those who had been shot had been identified right away.
Mina stated “No one in our community, not a mother, not a nine-year-old child, and certainly not news professionals should become victims of gun violence”.
