New Details are released from last night's shooting in Eastern Leon County that left one person dead and two hospitalized.

We now know that one of the victims was the shooter.

Deputies say a man's son shot him and his wife. The wife died.

Then another son stepped in and ended up shooting the first son.

Neighbors say it's all tragic, but, some say not surprising.

The deadly tragedy inside of 10085 Rose Road in Leon County happened among family.

But, the effect reaches other households nearby.

Anne Schneider said, "It's supposed to be quiet, nice out here. For something like that to happen, as a mother it hits too close to home for me; knowing that my son's in there watching cartoons and someone's dying right next door."

Deputies say they were called to the home around 8:45 Wednesday night.

When they arrived, deputies say 60-year-old Nina Savary was dead.

Investigators say her step son, 45-year-old Stanley Savary, Jr. shot her in the head, then turned the gun on his father, Nina's husband, --72-year-old Stanley Savary, Sr.--shooting him in the hand and neck.

Deputies say Stanley Jr.'s brother--35-year-old Jeffrey Savary--tried to subdue him, and during the struggle, Stanley, Jr. was shot in the chest.

Paul Stotz lives across the street. He says, "Some of us may have predicted a situation like this may have been coming because the son and the parents do occasionally get into verbal altercations and it's been like that off and on over the last 13 years that I've lived here."

The father and son were both taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

Amanda Houston said, "I live less than a mile away and have young children that live with me. It disturbs me the way things are nowadays; it does, especially knowing it being a family matter. It's heartbreaking."

Investigators have not released any details as to why Stanley Savary, Jr. shot his father and step mother.

At last word, he was listed in stable condition and his father in serious condition.

Detectives say as soon as he's released from the hospital, they do intend to charge Stanley Jr. with Murder, Attempted Murder and Aggravated Assault.

    Nina Savary was an outstanding lady with a wonderful work ethic and personality. She was honest, giving, and fairminded. At work she was loyal and generous and kind. The only comfort for those who knew her and worked with her is that she now enjoys eternal peace in heaven. Nina, you have our collective love, honor, and respect for your life on earth. It is also comforting to know that one day we will join you in heaven. We love you Nina...4520 and beyond. CBC
