A 9-year-old girl has called the police on Monday to say that her father was shooting people at her birthday party and that she did not get any presents.
“She was just calling 911, you know, if you can imagine, it’s horrific, the 911, saying, ‘Daddy was coming over for my birthday, and he shot people,’” NYPD Chief James Essig said.
“She was weeping and crying that she ‘didn’t have presents.’ It was heartbreaking to hear that.”
Cops rushed to the girl’s home in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn to find mom Rasheeda Barzey, 25, and sisters Solei and Chloe Spears, ages 20 and 16, dead from gunshot wounds.
The dad, identified as 46-year-old Joseph McCrimons, had fatally shot himself in the head in a nearby walkway.
Authorities said that he had served eight years in jail for a 1993 murder case. He is not the father of his daughter’s slaughtered sisters.
