On Saturday, a gunman named Kevin Milazzo from Texas killed four of his family members, including his ex-girlfriend's four-year-old son, before turning the gun on himself as police approached. His ex-girlfriend was also hurt in the shooting, which occurred in Corsicana, Texas, about 50 miles south of Dallas. When Milazzo, 41, called the cops shortly after midnight to say he had killed his family members, cops were alerted.

Milazzo's stepfather William Mimms, 68, and mother Connie Mimms, 61, were found dead when cops showed up. Investigators reported in a press release that two additional people were shot, during the tragic incident. Meanwhile, the Navarro County Sheriff's Department was called to a home in Frost, about 20 miles west of Corsicana, where Milazzo's son Joshua, 21, had been fatally shot, as well as the bodies of his ex-girlfriend, Pattie Freeman and their child with Pattie were found. Hunter Freeman, Milazzo's four-year-old son with his ex-girlfriend, was found unconscious. Pattie, on the other hand, was rushed to a Dallas-area trauma center with multiple gunshot wounds and was claimed to be in 'stable' condition by a family friend.

Following the shootings, cops used Milazzo's GPS to track down his vehicle and had the monitoring service cut off the engine. As they approached, they noticed him inside the car with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He died soon after in a nearby hospital. The intention for the shooting still is unknown.

Hunter's mother, Pattie, was told she would never be able to have children, but after improving her health, she became pregnant at the age of 38, according to a family friend. Her son was born prematurely the next year, weighing only three pounds and eight ounces.
