A Mother and her two daughters were shot to death in a murder-suicide in South Carolina after she reportedly had a heated feud with her partner.
Shanta Singleton and her two daughters Essence, 15, and Tre’vay, 12, were murdered, while two other children managed to escape the house.
Death On Birthday
Singleton, whose birthday was on 16 May, the same day she was killed, was believed to be on her way home from Myrtle Beach with her four daughters when they apprehended they were being watched.
According to the law enforcement, when they arrived at the home on 145 Bugleflower Lane, deputies say Singleton and the man, Gabriel Jordan, got into an argument.
Singleton’s children tried to help her when Jordan began to strangle her. After some moments, he killed her, two of her daughters, and then himself.
Officers responded to the residence near St. Matthews just after 7 pm Sunday and found the bodies of four people who had been killed by gunshots.
Jordan also died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
One of the children told detectives that Singleton traveled to Myrtle Beach with another man, and Jordan followed them home.
Singleton was telling Jordan their relationship was over, and she had been at the beach with another man, who she was now dating.
