Man Allegedly Shoots Spouse, Grandchild, and Himself in Brooklyn Apartment
Police say that 44-year-old David Sherrod shot his spouse, Alma c*x, and her grandson, 7-year-old Jaquan c*x before turning the gun on himself.
Police received complaints of an odor coming from the apartment and found the victims on Monday night. They believe the bodies were there since Saturday. Police said that neighbors heard the gun shots, but didn’t call for help until they noticed the smell.
Friends of Alma c*x told the NY Daily News that they believed she was in an abusive relationship and was trying to leave. Sherrod had been charged with assault agains c*x after police responded to a domestic disturbance report in August of 2010.
The families of the victims are in disbelief over the tragic chain of events.
“My mother was a very lovable person, very helpful, very generous,” Johnny c*x told the Daily News. “My son was a lovable person, very friendly, very playful. They both enjoyed life, they both enjoyed each other. It’s sad what happened to them but at least they’re together.”
Sherrod’s son, David Sherrod, Jr. described the two as “the best couple in the world.”
