Police reported a family murder-suicide in New York City on Friday that has left many confused.
According to the Associated Press, 86-year-old Heriberto Pagan shot his 47-year-old grandson in the head outside of a Staten Island house.
“I opened the door and that was it,” Michael Feliciano, the grandson, told New York Daily News.
The grandfather than shot Feliciano’s girlfriend, 28-year-old Claritle Christina Huerta in the head inside the building, killing her. Feliciano is being held at Staten Island University Hospital and is reported to be in stable condition.
Pagan reportedly left the scene in his car and shot himself a few blocks away. Police found him dead in his vehicle.
Pagan was allegedly trying to evict Feliciano and Huerta out of his home and was angry about how long the proceedings were taking.
The couple has a 4-month-old son who was found inside the house as well. He was unharmed and is currently in the custody of the Administration for Children’s Services.
