Police say that two teens who are accused of shooting a police officer dead reportedly committed suicide last Saturday.
Brandon Goode, 18, and Alexandria Hollinghurst, 17, had been reported missing when Officer Robert German called his fellow officers for backup after he saw them walking the streets of Florida early in the morning. CNN reports that when more police officers arrived, German was on the ground suffering from a severe gunshot wound.
The police officer later died at an Orlando hospital. Not far from where German was shot, the two teens were found dead.
Two days ago, the families of the two teens found letters addressed to them explaining that they had run away together.
According to WESH, Brandon Goode, one of the suspects, was arrested on assault charges back in 2012 when he allegedly attacked his mother with an axe. He has also been arrested on possession of marijuana and possession of alcohol by a minor.
Goode’s family has stated that they are deeply saddened by these events and that they will forever have German’s family in their prayers.
