Army vet shoots girlfriend and kills her 5-year-old son, broadcasts suicide on Facebook Live

Police have identified the victims of a murder-suicide broadcast live on Facebook.

U.S. Army veteran Jovonie McLendon Jr., 33, of Miamisburg, Ohio, called police just after 11 a.m. on Friday to say he had killed his girlfriend and her son, and was about to do the same to himself. He then followed through, broadcasting his suicide on Facebook Live in a video that has since been removed.

Police said 6-year-old Carter Clemons was pronounced dead at the scene, while his mother, Di’eshia Patterson, 27, was taken to Kettering Medical Center and remained in critical condition on Monday.

The action unfolded in a matter of minutes, Montgomery County, Ohio Police Chief Ron Hess told reporters on Monday, according to the Dayton Daily News.
