    Man Shoots Girlfriend, 2 Kids, Self in Virginia Home

    FALMOUTH, Va. — A man fatally shot his girlfriend, their two children and then himself, moments before a concerned relative stopped by to check on the family, the Stafford County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.

    Aaron P. Jackson, 24, used an assault rifle to kill Latasha Thomas, 23, late Monday in a mobile home they shared, investigators said in a news release.

    Jackson then used a handgun to shoot the couple's two children, Nicole Jackson, 2, and Aaron Jackson, 18 months, and himself, investigators said.

    Police said the adults died at the scene. The children, who were shot in their cribs, were taken to area hospitals where they later died, according to sheriff's office spokesman Bill Kennedy.

    Authorities were called to the home in Walt Lou Trailer Park at 9:40 p.m. Monday after a relative who came to check on the family couldn't get a response, Kennedy said.

    Police later learned Thomas had contacted the family member twice Monday complaining of being physically assaulted by Jackson, but called at 9:30 p.m. to say things were fine.

    A neighbor reported hearing gunshots moments before the family member arrived, Kennedy said.
    This is just crazy. If you want to kill yourself, start there.

    The list of things wrong with this scenario is so very long. The ending is saddly almost expected.

    1. man, woman, two kids===yet not married
    2. young parents raising 2 kids about a year apart
    3. woman calls her family saying she was being abused.....
    a. HOURS later a "concerned relative" stops by
    b. woman and her kids stay where they are
    4. this is likely not the first psychotic/mentally unstable outbreak for this man.....yet the girlfriend (AND HER CHILDREN) stay with him

    Poor judgement on alot of things. Perhaps this is a Darwinism in action.

    So very very tragic. My heart goes out to those children.

    How could you shoot a baby while it was laying in its crib? How could you shoot a baby, PERIOD?

    And how could any family member, knowing that those two babies were in that situation, not respond until hours later?

    I have never understood how a person could harm an defenseless child.

    Agreed GG...only as to 3a it was not hours by DAYS as she called originally on Monday (!).
    Days...:(

    And agreed this is not likely the day he woke up from a deep sleep and went berzerk.
    Sad, very sad.

    This DOES bother me greatly...this dirtbag certainly had warning signs...
    I just don't understand WHY someone would shoot the children...

    I am less than ten miles away from where this occured. I live south of Fredericksburg. Today I was reading the Free Lance Star (the area newspaper). It made mention that the shooter had a concealed weapon permit. And the article also basically said that those who have mutiple guns (a stockpile) can be seen as threats to society.

    Man that pissed me off.

    I'll try to post the actual article.

    Really quite a depressing situation.

    May the children and mother rest in peace.
    May the shooter burn in, well, . . . . . . .
