A mother-of-four killed her children and then herself early on Tuesday morning.
Sheriff’s deputies in Brevard County, Florida said 33-year-old Tanya Thomas on Tuesday shot her four children, who ranged in age from 12 to 17.
They were Joel, 12, Jazlin, 13, Jaxs, 15, and Pebbles Johnson, 17, deputies said, all of whom lived at the Port St John property with their mother.
Their father, who has been told of their deaths, lives separately, but also in Brevard County, according to the New York Post.
A neighbour told deputies they were woken up by the gunshots and heard a knock at the door. Three of the victims, who appeared to have been shot, were standing there asking for help.
They said Thomas came out of her house and calmly called over to the kids to return home.
‘She was very calm,’ sheriff’s spokesman Tom Goodyear said of the neighbor’s report. ‘She called them back and they walked back to the house.’
On arrival deputies found a Pebbles’, critically injured, lying in the front yard of 7245 Bright Avenue. She was taken by police car to an ambulance as a SWAT team surrounded the home.
Thomas was seen at the front door holding a gun but went back inside when she saw the officers in her front yard.
A short time later more gunfire was heard, prompting the SWAT team to go in through a back entrance.
Once inside they found the four other bodies.
Deputies had been at the home a few weeks ago on a domestic call after a neighbor called 911. The Orlando Sentinel reported that Jaxs was arrested on a domestic violence charge which also involved his mother.
Neighbour Travis St. Peter, told Florida Today that the family was known in the neighborhood for being disruptive, with police often being called to the house.
‘They were just known for being hoodlums,’ he said of the children, adding that they were often seen running aroundd late at night, ‘terrorizing our dogs and setting off firecrackers.’
A friend of Thomas told the Sentinel that they had woken to a text message sent by the woman during the night to say that she wished to be cremated along with her children. He did not see that message until he woke up this morning, hours after the killings.
Police would not speculate on a motive, or whether Thomas had planned the mass murder.
Port St. John is about 15 miles west of Cape Canaveral. The area is known as the ‘Space Coast’ because it is the home of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, home of numerous famed shuttle launches.
