A man from Florida has been charged with fatally cheating on two men and injuring a woman with a baseball bat while a 10-year-old cop called from a nearby room, according to numerous reports.
Ezekiel Emanuel Hopkins, 34, allegedly broke into the home of Johnerm and Lisa Savey in Windermere late Thursday by driving his vehicle through an entrance gate. He then tried to steal a car before the pair stopped him, according to Windermere police chief David Ogden and local Fox 35 Orlando accomplice.
“He attacked John Savey, leaving him dead outside the residence. The defendant then entered inside the residence and attacked Lisa Savey who had been dragged to her home,”; Ogden told a news conference. “The defendant also attacked John and Lisa Savey’s son, James Savey, leaving him dead inside the house.”
All the while, John and Lisa’s nephew, James’s nephew, called 911 from a bathroom where his grandmother had instructed him to hide, the exit reported.
“I do not believe the family was targeted,” Ogden said. “I believe he was just looking for another vehicle to steal because he had seen some police officers some time before he saw it.”
Hopkins was discovered inside another bathroom, unresponsive after police suspected he was drinking bleach, according to the report.
He was taken to a nearby hospital and charged with murder and aggravated battery.
The woman was seriously injured and rushed to an area hospital, the exit announced.
“Words really can not describe what we want to say to the family,” Ogden said. “It’s a terrible situation.”
