Florida Triple-Homicide Suspect Captured In Tenn.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The man suspected of killing three people at a Florida home has died from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, David Eugene Smith called 911 Tuesday morning. He told a dispatcher he was the man wanted in the slayings and said he wanted to die at the hands of law enforcement.

He was captured in his motel room, suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, after a standoff. He was transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead Tuesday afternoon. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

One of the victims was Smith’s sister, 31-year-old Danyala Smith. The other two victims were 25-year-old Nikosi Williams and 28-year-old Miranda Mims. Authorities are investigating the relationship between the three victims.
