U.S. : A teenager murders his mother and brother months after his father kills his sister

An entire fam­i­ly was wiped out over the course of six months in an inci­dent in which her moth­er and two sons were shot and her hus­band alleged­ly killed his daughter.

Dar­lene Flo­res, 38, and her son Rodri­go John­son, 16, were shot dead by her eldest son last Thurs­day at her home in Avon­dale, Cincinnati.

Eric John­son Jr., 19, took his own life after shoot­ing his moth­er and brother.

On Mon­day, Cincin­nati police revealed that John­son Jr. had pre­vi­ous­ly com­mit­ted mur­der, killing 18-year-old Sereno Fos­ter in 2020.

Accord­ing to the Cincin­nati Enquir­er, her moth­er and two sons were unre­spon­sive and shot at when police arrived.

The Cincin­nati fire brigade also rushed to the scene and declared all three dead.

Rodri­go and Eric’s grand­fa­ther, Michael Ryan, set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the funer­al, which has so far raised near­ly $25,000.

“This morn­ing, 2/3/23, we lost her daugh­ter, Dar­lene Flo­res, and two grand­chil­dren, John­son Jr. and Rodri­go Johnson.

“Our old­est grand­son trag­i­cal­ly took the lives of his moth­er and broth­er, and then himself.

“This Johnson/Flores fam­i­ly rests in peace now and will be deeply missed by all.”

“They raised us,” fam­i­ly friend Robert Davis told Cincin­nati tele­vi­sion sta­tion WLWT. Dar­lene was so sweet, she was like anoth­er mom.

“She” accept­ed us. She always gave us what we need­ed or asked for. And he taught me some life lessons. â€

Eric John­son, Dar­lene’s hus­band and father of two of John­son’s chil­dren, alleged­ly killed his daugh­ter and shot him­self in the months before John­son Jr. was murdered.

Police were called in a cus­tody bat­tle over their 6‑year-old daugh­ter, Ilya, with her moth­er, Darlene.

A SWAT team arrived on the scene and forced their way into the bedroom.

After sev­er­al hours of stand­off, the police found Eric and Ira’s bod­ies with gun­shot wounds.
