At the scene, officers reportedly learned the residents of the home, 22-year-old Kalila Saunders or her mother, 55-year-old Robin Saunders, defended themselves against the armed suspect, Jaquan Sanders, and shots were fired by both parties.
Upon their arrival, the Sheriff’s Office says the door had been damaged, matching the female caller’s report of the home invasion. A deputy reportedly located an unresponsive Sanders in the upstairs hallway with a pistol in his hand.
In the bedroom, the Sheriff’s Office says authorities found the two residents of the home, Kalila and Robin, on the floor with a pistol located nearby.
Kalila and Sanders were both reportedly declared dead at the scene from apparent gunshot wounds. The Sheriff’s Office says Robin was transported to the hospital, where she later died.
Two different pistols were reportedly recovered, along with bullets and casings consistent with the located calibers. The investigation remains ongoing.
