Father Allegedly Massacres Family, Daughter Calls 911 With Bullet Wound To Head

A father in Queens, New York, allegedly massacred his family early this morning.

Jonathan Walker, 34, reportedly shot his two daughters, his girlfriend and her mother in the head, before fleeing the home.

One child survived, the couple’s 12-year-old daughter, who called 911 and opened the door for police.

The child had been shot in the head and the bullet exited through her eye. She was rushed to Long Island Jewish Medical Center in critical condition.

A manhunt is now underway by police for Walker. He is black, 6-foot-6, 260 pounds and is believed to have fled in a silver 2013 GMC Arcadia sport utility vehicle with the license plate GVS8110.

City Councilman Donovan Richards called the murder scene “truly horrific."

“We’ve heard he was out with a friend. He told his friend he was going to get some beers and going home to watch Netflix with the family. We don’t know what made him snapped when he came in,” Richards said.

The bodies of the victims were found in different rooms of the house. Viola Warren, 62, and her daughter, Shantai Hale, 31, were found in one bedroom, and 7-year-old Kayla Walker was found in another bedroom.

A neighbor described Walker as “a very quiet guy, reserved.”

“You don’t see him walking on the streets. He doesn’t speak to anyone,” Regina George, 50, said. “I’m shocked. It is very sad. I hope he turns himself in. I hope he does not kill anyone else.”

For those who may have any information on the killings or Walker’s whereabouts, police have asked that they call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).  Tips can also be texted to 274637 (CRIMES), entering TIP577, or submitted online at NYPD Crime Stoppers.
