23-year-old Shavell Jordan Jones opened fire on his girlfriend and her family, including her young niece and mother at approximately 4am on Friday, the shooting occurred following an argument at the family home on Myers Drive in East Orange County.


Police were alerted to the horrific slaughter after the fifth victim, who had also suffered serious injuries, managed to escape and run to a neighbour's property who called 911.


Sheriff John Mina told local media reporters how officers from Orange County arrived at the scene to find three women and a four-year-old girl dead, all with gunshot wounds to the head.


Jones then attempted to take his own life by shooting himself in the head but survived. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.



Police said that Jones had earlier had an argument with his girlfriend, 29, and started to remove his belongings from the property.


Sheriff Mina said that the suspect returned shortly after and opened fire. Jones allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, her 49-year-old mother, and her 28-year-old sister, before turning the gun on her 4-year-old niece.


The fifth victim, who escaped and contacted police was his girlfriend's other sister, a woman in her 20s.


Authorities said there was no known domestic violence incidents at the property and Jones has no previous criminal history apart from failing to appear for a misdemeanor charge.


Mine added that it was "too early to tell" if the suspect will survive the self-inflicted gunshot wound, but said that if he survives he will be charged with the murders.
