Attempted Murder and Suicide in Lake City

Crime+Scene+TapeOn Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 9:30 p.m., a neighbor to 559 NW Gwen Lake Boulevard called to report hearing “two loud pops” from the residence. Lake City Police Department officers responded to the residence and established a perimeter while officers were attempting to make phone contact with someone inside.

Within a few minutes of receiving the call, a female arrived at the Police Department saying she was just shot at by her boyfriend as she was running out the front of the residence. She added his 8 and 10 year old daughters were still inside the residence.

Due to the nature of the call, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) SWAT Team was requested and responded, along with their Hostage Negotiations Team. The Lake City Fire Department and Lifeguard Ambulance service also responded and were on stand-by. Numerous attempts were made to contact the male suspect inside the residence, but none were successful.

After evacuating neighboring residences, the CCSO SWAT Team made a tactical entry into the residence. While inside they encountered the two young girls, unharmed, as they ran to them and later discovered the suspect, a 37-year-old white male located in a shed at the rear of the property, deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. CCSO Victim’s Advocate also responded to the scene to assist with the two young girls.

Due to the ongoing investigation by LCPD Criminal Investigative Division, there are no other details available at this time. The name of the deceased is not being released until notification of next of kin has been made.
