Man Attacks Ex While She Holds Their 3 Kids, Kills 1 Man, Injures Another: Arrested

Police say Combs threw a brick window through the apartment of his ex, 23, who is the mother of their three daughters, ages three, five and seven. He charged through the glass window armed with a pistol, according to a probable cause statement…

Prosecutors say Combs and his ex were not living together and he did not have permission to be in her home.

Once inside the apartment on 1300 block of North 7th Street, at around 11:30 p.m., he fired a shot into the head and back of one man inside, who police identified as John Gorman, 27. He was pronounced dead soon after. Combs then allegedly shot another man, 25, in the face. He is currently hospitalized and in critical and unstable condition. The statement says these two men are childhood friends of the woman.

After those shootings, Combs reportedly found his ex who was hiding in a closet with their three daughters. At this point, he pressed his pistol to the woman’s face while she clung to her children, the statement says.

She has a circular injury to her forehead and suffered other cuts and lacerations. It appears the children were not physically injured in the assault.
