Florida Mom Kills Kids — Shoots 4 Children, Turns Gun On Herself


1337108292858In devastating news, five bodies were found after a Florida mom shot her four children and then turned the gun on herself, on the morning of May 15.

Authorities said three of the four children ran to their next-door neighbor’s house before their mother Tanya Thomas called them back home and killed them.

The children’s ages ranged from 12-17. Brevard County Sheriff Lt. Tod Goodyear said their neighbor called 911 after hearing gunshots. Shortly after, three children knocked on the neighbor’s door and said they had been shot.

Tanya, 33, ordered them back to the house and proceeded to shoot and kill them, said Goodyear. Once the neighbor heard more gunshots, 911 was called again.

When police arrived, they saw Pebbles Johnson, 17, outside, suffering from her wounds. They heard four shots from inside the house. Pebbles was taken to an ambulance in a police car but died enroute to the hospital.

Tanya then emerged from her house with the gun and retreated when she saw the deputies approach.

After a final gunshot was heard, a SWAT team entered the home and found Tanya had killed herself with her gun and her three other children, Joel Johnson, 12, Jazlin Johnson, 13, and Jaxs Johnson, 15, murdered.

The motive is currently not known.
