    FL - Three people killed, one injured in shooting at Brooksville home, 30 Aug 2014

    http://www.tampabay.com/news/publics...ooting/2195423

    George Mason III spent a lot of time at the little cream-colored house at 820 Peach St. His half-brother Gabriel "Bo" Taylor lived there with their mother Tracy Taylor and their 81-year-old grandmother, Jannie V. Taylor. So did Tracy's other son, Ralph Peyton...

    Police say Mason fatally shot Peyton, Jannie Taylor, and Tarasha Yata Townsend, his 37-year-old girlfriend and mother of two of his daughters. Gabriel Taylor, 33, was critically wounded.

    According to investigators, Mason chased Gabriel Taylor to the nearby corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Main Street and shot him multiple times with a 9 mm handgun. Almost in the same moment, Mason was struck by a Dodge pickup truck heading east on MLK.

    A career criminal with an arrest record that goes back more than two decades is facing three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in connection with a mass shooting that occurred Friday night in Brooksville.

    As George June Mason III attempted to flee the crime scene just as law enforcement arrived he was struck by a pick-up truck. He was transported to Regional Medical Center at Bayonet Point in Hudson with several broken bones.

    from your last link:

    ".... lives next door, and heard the gunshot. Initially he thought someone threw a brick at his front door. He says he knows the victims, as well as the gunman. "He was crazy as hell. He's been crazy all his life." Said Townsend about Mason. "There's more to that, but I'm not going to say. "


    poor neighbor .... it's tough to know someone is a loose cannon and know there is nothing you can do to stave off future violence moo

    More details ...

    And police can barely get a word out of Mason, who is laid up with two broken legs, a broken back and broken neck, police told WTSP-TV.

    Gabriel Taylor is fortunate to be alive. I hope he pulls through

    Taylor was shot several times, including once in the head, and is in critical condition, police said.

    I think they're now looking for motive now and apparently Mason isn't cooperating any longer.

    Police released a host of 911 tapes on Tuesday night, painting a chaotic picture. Several people called in to request help for the gunshot victims. The driver of a tan Dodge Ram 1500 called in to say he had just struck a man in the street. Other calls came from inside the home of where the shooting occurred.

    A 16-year-old witness was inside the home when the gunfire started.

    "The 42-year-old man accused of fatally shooting three people and injuring another Friday night was released from the hospital Wednesday and booked into the Hernando County Detention Center, according to jail records.
    George Mason III was booked at about 4:30 p.m. after being treated at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson. He suffered numerous broken bones and internal injuries when he was struck by a Dodge truck at the end of Friday's shooting rampage."

    I'm surprised they moved him with this many injuries.

    A little more than a month after a shooting rampage in south Brooksville left three people dead and a fourth victim in critical condition, accused killer George Mason III pleaded not guilty Tuesday to three counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted felony murder...

    Assistant State Attorney Pete Magrino said he hasn't decided whether he will seek the death penalty in the case.

    No motive for the rampage has been established.
