Authorities in Georgia continue their search for a missing 2-year-old boy and his father after the man allegedly shot to death three members of his son’s mother’s family late Tuesday night.
A statement from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office confirms deputies were summoned to a home in Macon at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, arriving to find “three people shot in the house and one female with injuries.”
The injured woman was 30-year-old Jamila Augustine French, who told police she’d had an altercation earlier that evening with Caesar Zamien Lamar Crockett, Jr., 29.
Information about the altercation and what prompted it was unavailable.
“During the altercation, Crockett pulled a firearm and shot French’s mother and step-father and sister, killing them,” the statement alleges.
The victims have been identified as James Samuel, 69, his 67-year-old wife, Janet Samuel, and their daughter, LeChasta Childs, 47.
He also allegedly shot his son’s mother. Information on her condition was unavailable Wednesday morning.
“Crockett then fled the scene with his 2-year-old son King Cane Crockett,” the statement alleges.
Police say that Crockett is believed to be driving a black 2007 Pontiac G5 bearing a temporary license plate. They add his son is in “extreme danger.”
Crockett is wanted by police on three counts of murder and one count of kidnapping.
Police say he has family in both Florida and California.
