Relatives discovered the bodies of four family members, including two children with multiple gunshot wounds, inside a Fontana, Calif. home after what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Police obtained a search warrant overnight and are continuing the investigation Tuesday morning at the home in the 7300 block of Palmetto Avenue. Authorities received a call from a 16-year-old boy who said his family members had been injured or possibly killed in the house, according to Fontana police Sgt. Doug Imhof.

“We located four bodies, two children, a female about 12 years old, a male about 10 years old, a female victim adult 35 to 40 (years old) and a male about the same age,” Imhof said. “It appears as though they all lived there.”

Killed – Girl – Hope Alexandra Fair (Fountain Inn, SC)

Hope Alexandra Fair

A teen boy fatally shot a 12-year-old girl at a mobile home in South Carolina on Sunday evening in what he called an accident, police said.

The unidentified 15-year-old was loading a magazine into a Colt .380 when it fired a bullet to Hope Alexandria Fair’s head, local media report.

Hope’s mother, Michelle Fair, remembers her daughter as a friendly and creative girl who loves art and music.

“She’s just very outgoing, outspoken, joyful and a happy girl,” Fair told The State newspaper of South Carolina. “She was beautiful. … She’d make friends with everybody.”

The unidentified teen boy has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, and Hope’s family thinks the killing was an accident — though the boy changed his story several times, according to the newspaper.

Hope was at the home in Fountain Inn, S.C., to visit her friend, the boy’s cousin, who called dispatch herself to say that the teen boy was holding the pistol when it went off and that he had left the mobile home to hide it, local media said.

Coroner Nick Nichols says Hope Alexandra Fair of Gray Court died at a hospital at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Deputies say the shooting happened at a home in Fountain Inn about an hour earlier.

Nichols says the girl was shot in the head. Authorities haven’t released any other details.

Killed – Girl (Quick, WV)


Police say a 10-year-old girl was fatally shot on Pentacre Road in Quick on Sunday. The girl and a 9-year-old boy were shooting targets with a shotgun when the girl was accidentally shot in the chest and arm.

QUICK, W.Va. — A 10-year-old girl was shot and killed Sunday in Kanawha County in what police say was an accidental shooting involving another child.

A 911 call was made around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, reporting that the girl was accidentally shot while she and a 9-year-old boy were “target practicing” with a shotgun in Quick, according to dispatchers.

The girl received injuries to her chest and arm and underwent surgery at CAMC General Hospital, where she died overnight.

The shooting happened near a creek bank in the 3800 block of Pentacre Road.

The names of the two minors were not released by Monday evening, and the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating.

Police confirmed that the two children were not siblings.

On December 22, 2013 at approximately 5:30 p.m. a shooting was reported in the 3800 block of Pentacre Road near Quick, Kanawha County WV. A caller reported to Metro 911 that a nine year old and ten year old were target practicing with a 410 shotgun near a creek when the ten year old was accidentally shot. The ten year old female received injuries to her arm and chest.

Medics were dispatched along with Kanawha County Sheriff’s Deputies. Local volunteer fire department members also responded to render aid.

She was transported from the scene by personal vehicle until a responding ambulance with the Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority met them along the route. HealthNet launched a helicopter to assist with transport, but was cancelled when the ambulance was determined to be the fastest mode of transportation and continued to Charleston Area Medical Center’s General Division Hospital with the patient.

The patient was taken into surgery upon arrival. The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office will not likely issue further updates on the condition of the victim.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Girl – Kierra Adams (Alma, AR)

Kierra Adams

The names of the victims killed in Tuesday’s shooting in rural Crawford County were revealed Wednesday, but a motive remains unclear.

Investigators believe 51-year-old Tim Adams shot and killed his 4-month-old grandson, Chayston Williams, his 4-year-old granddaughter, Kierra Adams, and 31-year-old Michael Williams, the father of Chayston and boyfriend to Tim Adams’ daughter, Ashley Adams, said Chief Deputy Jimmy Damante with the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting happened north of the Alma city limits at 2127 Old Rudy Road, the home of Tim and Regina Adams, just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. Damante said Ashley Adams and Michael Williams had arrived at the home with the 4-month-old to pick up Kierra and another of Ashley’s daughters, a 3-year-old.

Investigators believe Ashley Adams went inside the home where her two daughters and Regina and Tim Adams were. Ashley Adams and Tim Adams got into an argument over Ashley Adams’ scheduled court appearance for Tuesday and what she would do with her children, Damante said.

Tim Adams went outside and retrieved a shotgun from of his pickup and shot Michael Williams, who had been waiting in the passenger side of the car with Chayston Williams in the back seat. Ashley Adams ran outside and got into a scuffle with her father, who broke free, went to the driver’s side of the car and shot the baby, Damante said.

Ashley Adams grabbed the infant and returned to the home, where Tim Adams pursued her. Regina Adams ran through the house with the 3- and 4-year-old girls to get away from Tim Adams. A shot was fired inside the home, but no one was injured, Damante said.

Regina and Ashley Adams ran out the back door with the two children. Tim Adams came outside. Regina Adams hid behind a pickup with the two girls, but Kierra stepped out and was shot in the back. Regina Adams then ran into the house with the 3-year-old, and Ashley Adams ran through the front door and placed the baby on a bed, Damante said.

A Crawford County deputy arrived at the scene to find Tim Adams outside talking on a cellphone behind the house. The deputy recognized Adams and pleaded with him to stop and put down the gun. Tim Adams then shot himself, Damante said.

Investigators are unsure with whom Tim Adams was talking on the cellphone. The bodies will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory in Little Rock for examination, Damante said.

Jamerica Ragsdale

Warren County Coroner Doug Huskie says that 6-year-old Jamerica Ragsdale died at 1:36 Thursday morning. She was shot in the head Tuesday at her grandmother’s home on Cooper Drive, west of Vicksburg.

There was a 16 year old in the house in an adjacent bedroom handling a 22 caliber pistol,” said Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace. “The firearm discharged. The projectile went through the wall of the bedroom into the living room where the child was standing and struck the child in the head.”

“Yeah it was an accident,” said Nikia Ragsdale, Jamerica’s uncle. “But he shouldn’t been playing with guns.”

Those in the house say Jamerica and her four sisters were staying there temporarily with their grandmother while their family moved. The teen shooter, is not being identified, nor do we know how he’s related to the family.

“At this time the 16 year old is being detained in youth detention for possession of a handgun by a minor,” said Sheriff Pace. “As this investigation continues all that information will be presented to the Warren County Youth Court to see if any charges are applicable to the injury of the child.”

Investigators are also looking into where the gun came from, and how it made it’s way into the hands of the teen.

Jamerica was playing at her grandmother’s house while a 16-year-old family friend was in a different room handling a gun. The .22-caliber handgun discharged, sending a bullet through a wall and into Jamerica’s head. She died two days later.

Double Murder – Killed – Girl – Mia Lopez (Hemet, CA)

Mia Lopez1

MURRIETA – Criminal charges that could result in the death penalty were filed today against a Hemet man accused of fatally shooting his wife and 5-year-old daughter and stabbing and raping his ex-girlfriend.

Johnny Lopez, 33, is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Joanna Angel Barrientos Lopez, 36, and Mia Lopez, along with a special circumstance allegation of multiple murders. A decision on whether to seek capital punishment will be made at a later date by District Attorney Paul Zellerbach.

If convicted, Lopez would face a minimum of life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to District Attorney’s spokesman John Hall.

He is slated to be arraigned on Dec. 6 at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta.

About 8:15 p.m. last Saturday, deputies responded to a call of a bloodied man standing in the street in front of a home in the 41000 block of Sunset Lane in Hemet. The man, identified as Lopez, struggled with deputies before he was taken into custody, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Torrenti said.

Inside the home, deputies found his former girlfriend with serious neck lacerations that were initially considered life-threatening. She remains hospitalized in stable condition.

Lopez is charged with attempted murder for allegedly inflicting the stab wounds, and is also charged with raping the woman, whose identity was withheld.

About an hour later, dispatchers received a call from the 26000 block of Girard Street in Hemet, just more than a mile away from the Sunset Lane home.

There, deputies found the bodies of the defendant’s wife and daughter, Torrenti said. Mia was a child from a previous relationship Johnny Lopez had with a woman other than Barrientos, according to broadcast reports.

Lopez is also charged with burglary and allegations that he used a knife, an ax and a cord in the attack against his ex-girlfriend, Hall said.

At 9:16 p.m. on Saturday, deputies received a suspicious circumstance call at a residence in the 26000 block of Girard Street in Hemet. The caller reported that two people were dead inside the residence.
