The NYPD is searching for a Queens man who allegedly shot his two daughters, his girlfriend, and her mother, the New York Post reports. One of his daughters, who had been shot in the head, was reportedly able to call 911 after he left the house this morning.
Three of the shooting victims were pronounced dead at the scene in Queens' Springfield Gardens neighborhood, Pix11 reported. Viola Warren, 62, and her daughter, Shantai Hale, 31 were found in one room; Kayla Walker, 7, was found in another.
The 12-year-old girl who called police was taken to Long Island Jewish Medical Center and is in critical condition. Not only did she call 911, but, according to the Post, she opened the door for police when they arrived. A bullet had exited through her eye.
The suspect has been identified as Jonathan Walker, the Post reported. (Pix 11 reported the spelling of his first name as "Jonathon.") He is 34 years old, 6'6", and weighs 260 pounds. Police believe he drove off in a silver 2013 GMC Arcadia SUV, license plate GVS8110. DNAinfo reports that he is also believed to still be carrying a gun.
"My heart cries out to the family," City Councilman Donovan Richards said. "What could trigger such madness?"
