MIDDLEBURG, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a north Florida man fatally shot his girlfriend and then killed himself.
The Clay County Sheriff's Office reports that deputies responded
Thursday afternoon to a shooting at the Middleburg home. The dead
woman's juvenile daughter had heard the shots and ran to neighbor's
house to call 911.
The sheriff's office did not release the names of the man or woman, but records show the home's owner, George Chaney, filed paperwork last week to evict Kathryn Jackson. Neighbors say the two were going through a breakup.
The state Department of Children and Families has taken the girl and was looking to place her in the care of relatives.
