A Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy killed three members of the family before he was killed near a Florida high school on Wednesday, police said.
A Florida deputy killed three members of the family, confessed to the crime on a chilling radio call to other officers before killing themselves in the vicinity of a school, despite the colleagues from resources on Wednesday, police said.
The authorities were called to the scene in the vicinity of Plant City High School after the Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy, who is not identified, on condition that the details of the murders that have taken place in two homes, FOX13 reported.
“Today, I stand before you with a very heavy heart,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said at a press conference. “Saddened and disheartened about the events that have occurred early this morning.”
The deputy got on the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the main radio station just after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and told officers: “he causes damage to his family,” Chronister said. The deputy said he killed two family members in a home and the other on a second home, and data about the place of their body.
The deputy said during the radio broadcast that he was going to kill himself in high school, which officers to rush to his location in an attempt to stop him.
Despite their efforts, he took his own life in front of his colleagues, police said.
“Unfortunately, the deputy took his own life at the scene in front of the three delegates,” Chronister said.
The police later found a woman and a child dead in a house. Another woman was located on the second stay, the deputy described. Their identity and their relationship with the observer, have not been released, pending family notification.
It is unclear why the deputy carried out the massacre. Chronister said the deputy referred to health and financial problems during his cryptic radio broadcast.
“We’re not really sure what that means,” Chronister added. “That will be a part of the research.”
The deputy began to work for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department in 1991 before going to sleep two years ago. He was he last summer a part of the on-campus security at a primary school.
Chronister said the vice-previously received “glowing” recommendations and there was “no indication” that he would commit a crime.
