In a tragic turn of events, a domestic violence incident in Orlando, Florida, resulted in four fatalities, including a child, early Sunday morning. Responding to a call reporting domestic violence at a residence on 614 Grand St., Orlando Police arrived on the scene just before 2:30 a.m.
Upon their arrival, officers heard gunshots from inside the house, prompting additional law enforcement to respond. The suspect, identified as 28-year-old Lacorvis Tamar Daley, emerged from the home and began firing at the officers.
Following a police exchange of fire, Daley was transported to a hospital. After being taken there, he was later pronounced dead.
Inside the residence, officers discovered two adults and a child, all suffering from gunshot wounds. Despite being rushed to a hospital, the child succumbed to their injuries. The identities of the three victims found in the home have not been released as of Sunday afternoon.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer expressed his condolences on social media, describing the incident as “a horrific, tragic situation.” He extended his support to the victims’ family members and acknowledged the officers involved, who were fortunately unharmed.
Following department policy, the two officers involved in the shooting will be placed on paid administrative leave. Body camera footage from the incident will be made public within 30 days.
The Orlando Police Department will conduct an internal investigation into the matter.
Orlando Police Public Information Manager Andrea Otero revealed that investigators are currently examining whether Daley had a criminal history and if there had been any previous calls reporting domestic violence at the address.
