The Havana Police Chief says his officers have been called to this home several times in the past, but this time it was deadly. Police say the man shot and killed his girlfriend, tried to shoot an officer, then shot and killed himself.
It was an emotional scene Wednesday morning. Havana Police say 66-year-old Marzell Mann shot and killed his live-in girlfriend, 51-year-old Rosa Jackson, then killed himself.
Neighbor Filmore Wester says, "All I heard was gunshots about a little after 11:00 and then again before day."
Police say they were called to the home at 304 3rd Street S.E. around 6:30 Wednesday morning.
Police say when an officer arrived, Mann was on the porch and shot at him. Then Mann went inside the home and barricaded himself.
The Tallahassee Police TAC Team was called in... and after about an hour...police say they went inside and saw that Jackson was dead...and that Mann had also shot and killed himself.
Havana Police Chief Glynn Beach says, "We've responded numerous times in the past. Both individuals were heavy drinkers. That does lead into problems eventually. I don't know if that was a factor, but, it could've been."
Neighbor Sarah Glenn says she had plans to hang out with the couple later in the day. "It's still hard to even believe it right now even though I see it. It's just like watching a movie. It's a terrible thing to happened. S3 I won't be hearing her voice anymore."
The investigation is still ongoing. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was called in as an additional resource.
