According to reports by Florida authorities, a suspect who went on a killing rampage is dead. The man had previously been involved in different shootings that resulted in the deaths of 3 women. His victims were his mother, his cousin, and his former girlfriend’s new partner.

On Monday, June 24, 2024, Javontee Brice appeared at his sister and ex-girlfriend’s home in Palmetto, Florida. Although the shooting took place later that night, Brice had told his former girlfriend of his intention to kill her. However, at the time, his sister was able to persuade him out of his plan to shoot her.

According to Rick Wells, the Manatee County Sheriff, Brice’s sister had told the police that he was acting weird. According to Wells, after leaving Palmetto, he drove to a motel in Bradenton, where his mother was staying. When he arrived around 9:15 pm on June 24, 2024, he met his mother, her boyfriend, and two younger sisters. 

He spoke with his mother, telling her he was sorry, which prompted her to ask him why he was apologizing. Brice didn’t respond and proceeded to speak to her three times in front of his siblings and his mother’s boyfriend.

Brice had driven back to Bradenton to another ex-girlfriend’s apartment, arriving at the location at around 10 pm. Brice had met his ex-girlfriend’s new partner and shot her. Subsequently, the sheriff’s department sent a statewide notice with details of his vehicle and the urgency of the notice.

He said that Brice had a target list in his head and had no problem finding his victim. “We’re not sure what enraged this man.
