A Mississippi man shot the owners of a house where he was living in and their children, killing the father and nine-year-old daughter as well as critically wounding the mother and two other children Friday, police said.
The mother and her two children crossed a busy two-lane highway to plead for help from neighbors who were awakened by loud knocking on their door.
“It was like out of a horror movie,” said Donna Davis, 39. “I still see that little girl’s face in my mind.”
Jermaine Sims, 31, and the nine-year-old daughter died later Friday morning. His 29-year-old wife, Victoria, and their 6-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter survived the shooting but were in critical condition, Captain Clint Earls said.
Jimmy Lyons is accused of shooting the family, Earls said. He said the 32-year-old man and Sims got into an argument but did not know what about.
“The only thing we are waiting on is getting some of the victims in well-enough health to where they can shed some light on what caused the incident to erupt,” Earls said. Lyons faces two counts of murder and three of aggravated assault.
