An argument between a Florida mother and her boyfriend turned deadly after the man shot and killed the woman and two of her children and wounded a third child before fleeing early Sunday, cops said.
Takeeya Fulton, 39, her 19-year-old daughter Nuckeria Harris, her 17-year-old son Corey “C.J.” Bishop and her 12-year-old son were found shot in their Southwest Miami-Dade home at about 4 a.m. Sunday, loved ones wrote on social media.
The mother and her daughter were found dead at the scene by police responding to a call of shots fired.
Two of the woman’s sons were also shot and airlifted to Kendall Regional Hospital, where the 17-year-old boy later died and the 12-year-old boy is in stable condition, Miami-Dade Police said.
Police said on Monday they are searching for Antwon Lamar Fair, 32, in connection to the shootings.
Labeling him a “triple homicide suspect,” police said Fair “should be considered armed and dangerous.”
Fair was found guilty of a felony possession of a firearm in 2014 and was charged twice with battery in 2004 and 2010, Miami-Dade County court records show.
Fair is the father of three of Fulton’s children, relatives told the Miami Herald, but his relationship with the victims was not immediately clear.
Devastated family and friends expressed their grief and anger on Facebook in the hours after the killings.
“Lord I ask you to give me the strength, I’m feeling so weak. My head hurt so bad, I tried to sleep but all I see is my family, my sister, my niece, my nephew,” Fulton’s brother posted. “Lord, I come to you as your child, just give me the strength to stay strong, my family needs me.
“Lord I need to know why,” he later wrote.
A woman who identified herself as Fulton’s sister wrote: “God ain’t play no part in this s***!!!”
“How can they be in a better place??? They belong here with their family!! My sister belongs here with her kids!!!!!” she continued.
Fair, who remained at large on Monday, was last seen in a in a white 2009 Chevy Impala with the Florida license plates BDYW87.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
