Deputies: Man Fatally Shot Ex-Girlfriend With Son in Car

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Jacksonville man has been arrested after police say he shot and killed his ex-girlfriend inside a car in front of their 3-year-old son over the weekend.

Multiple news outlets report that the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says 24-year-old Kameron Holmes is charged with murder in the death of 23-year-old Bria Kelsey.

Sheriff’s office Lt. Steve Gallaher says deputies found Kelsey dead Saturday in the back seat of a car, which was being driven by Holmes.

Gallaher says Holmes first told authorities Kelsey was shot in a drive-by but later admitted that he and Kelsey were arguing and he shot her in the head with a pistol.

Gallaher says the couple’s son was also in the back seat when Holmes fired the gun.

It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
