MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Florida man wanted in a triple shooting has turned himself in, according to police.
38-year-old Ernst Cherizard turned himself in to the Haines City Police Department after 2 p.m. Sunday.
The Haines City police chief spoke Friday night following the deadly shooting at an apartment complex.
“It’s disgusting to say, the least. I can’t say what I really want to say about him. That’s why all I’m going to tell you is that he’s a male, not much of a man, who shot a child and two females,” Haines City Police Chief James Elensky said.
Since then, police told us 48-year-old Nicole Guillume and 23-year-old Eli Normil were shot and killed.
Police say Normil’s daughter, six-year-old Elizabelle Frenel, was shot in the head. She died overnight.
Investigators say Normil was Cherizard’s girlfriend and Guillume was her relative.
Investigators told CBS4 News they are aware of a Facebook post on the suspect’s page after the shooting that reads in part: “My girl wasn’t too happy about me talking to my ex baby mama to see my kids.” The post goes on to say “I don’t know what happened. All I know is, we were fighting for the gun, then I lost it. It’s almost like I was hearing voices in my head.”
Police say the six-year-old was not related to the suspect. She was being treated in an Orlando hospital.
