MIAMI – A man killed his daughter and six grandchildren, the youngest just three months old, in a mass shooting at a house in the US state of Florida on Thursday, police said.
The shooter, identified as Don Charles Spirit, 51, (pic) then killed himself after the incident in the small town of Bell, said Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz.
The oldest child was age 10.
“I haven’t seen anything like this at all,” Schultz said.
“This county, this community is going to be devastated from this. It is a small county, we are all family here.
“We’re asking for prayers for this community and the families involved.” â€“ AFP
