Texas authorities have arrested a 31-year-old man they accused of randomly opening fire at people killing 3 and injuring many before burning his girlfriend’s father at his home.
Jeremy Rashad Harris is, according to Deputy Chief Reuben Ramirez, “the definition of a serial killer” because his crimes are “random without any association.”
On Wednesday, Harris allegedly set the Celina house of his girlfriend’s father Blair Carter on fire. The 60-year-old’s charred body was found inside.
His other victims were identified as 19-year-old Robert Jaden Urrea, a student gunned down on the street; 57-year-old Kenneth Jerome Hamilton, a grandfather who was shot behind the wheel; and 36-year-old Adam Gautreau who was panhandling on Nov. 14, when he was fatally shot.
In all these fatal incidents, Harris’ black Chevrolet Tahoe was caught on the scene. The car belongs to his girlfriend who told police he assaulted her and stole it.
Days later, and in three separate incidents, a man and two young women were shot and sustained injuries. A day earlier, a shooting victim survived the same ordeal.
Detectives determined that the bullets used were similar to a fired cartridge found in Harris’s black sedan under the passenger seat, and the weapon might be his Ruger 9mm handgun.
“It is extremely unusual for someone to just go on a shooting spree,” police said.
“We do suspect he may be responsible for other offenses. We’re investigating those now.”
