Investigators are investigating after a young mother killed three children at a house in Florida.
The woman’s family identified her as 25-year-old Janai Dominguez.
Dominguez’s three children, all under the age of eight, were inside the apartment when the shooting took place before 9:30 p.m. Police say. They were unharmed.
The children were still at home when the officers arrived at the scene.
“Not only for her family but for her children in particular, we want to find the responsible person,” said Detective Robin Tillett of the Lakeland Police Department. “It’s just … it’s really sad.”
Eleven bullets can be seen in the front door of the apartment.
“I feel very strongly seeing her get justice,” said resident Echo Powell.
Powell lives in the Lakeland, Florida neighborhood where the shooting occurred.
Although Powell did not know Dominguez, she went to her neighbors to find witnesses and video surveillance clips to present to investigators. She also showed a video clip she had taken of remote shots.
And she said, “I feel like I feel the property,” well, it shouldn’t have happened here, but since it happened here, I want to strive as a community. “
The GoFundMe page was created to assist with funeral costs. “We have all lost an amazing spirit in this world and are mourning an incredible loss,” she says.
The police have not released the motive for the shooting or the suspect.
“We’ve seen a lot of activity on social media, which is great,” said Tillett. “But we ask people if you have any information, no matter how small the tip is or what information, to contact investigators here at the Lakeland Police Department.”
