MIAMI, Fla. (CBSMiami) – A Florida man wanted in a triple shooting has turned himself in, according to police.

38-year-old Ernst Cherizard turned himself in to the Haines City Police Department after 2 p.m. Sunday.

The Haines City police chief spoke Friday night following the deadly shooting at an apartment complex.

“It’s disgusting to say, the least. I can’t say what I really want to say about him. That’s why all I’m going to tell you is that he’s a male, not much of a man, who shot a child and two females,” Haines City Police Chief James Elensky said.

Police said 48-year-old Nicole Guillume and 23-year-old Eli Normil were shot and killed. Normil’s daughter, six-year-old Elizabelle Frenel, was shot in the head. She died overnight.

Investigators say Normil was Cherizard’s girlfriend and Guillume was her relative.

Investigators told CBS4 News they are aware of a Facebook post on the suspect’s page after the shooting that reads in part: “My girl wasn’t too happy about me talking to my ex baby mama to see my kids.” The post goes on to say “I don’t know what happened. All I know is, we were fighting for the gun, then I lost it. It’s almost like I was hearing voices in my head.”

HAINES CITY, Fla. (AP) -- A 6-year-old Florida girl shot by a gunman who killed her mother and aunt has also died.

Haines City Police said Elizabelle Frenel died late Saturday. Her 23-year-old mother, Eli Normil, and 48-year-old aunt Nicole Guillume died at the scene of Friday night's shooting.

Police are still seeking the 38-year-old suspect, Ernst Cherizard, who had been in a relationship with Normil.

Police said Cherizard fled in a burgundy 2011 Nissan Altima, license plate GZN C82. A toll booth 200 miles away near Fort Lauderdale recorded the plate early Saturday. Haines City is 40 miles southwest of Orlando.

Police said Cherizard apologized on Facebook hours after the shooting, but Chief James Elensky called him "a monster."
