As the two struggled, his former girlfriend, Stephanie Jones, came into the bedroom and shouted: “Don’t shoot my daddy,” according to the criminal complaint.

Then, Tucker aimed the pistol at her father and shot him, before turning around and shooting her in the chest, the complaint says.

Jones’ mother told police she had just fed her 2-year-old granddaughter when she saw Tucker climbing in through the bedroom window.

She witnessed the shooting and scooped up her granddaughter and fled, fearing Tucker “intended to murder everyone in the home.” A 15-year-old teen who was staying in the house also witnessed the shooting and ran from the home.

Her mother said Jones told her Tucker had stalked her and been physically abusive, even pointing a pistol at her numerous times.
