Akron, OH – 600 Block of Britain Rd around 2:00 AM
After being called out to the scene for help by the 11 year old daughter of the victim, the police found a 35-year old woman laying on a basement floor with multiple gun wounds. The daughter heard her mother and boyfriend arguing, then heard gunshots & called the police.
The 35- year old fiance (J’Juan Butler) ran away from the crime scene and was found in the driveway of a house in the 1400 block of Virginia Ave. When the police approached him, he out the gun to his chest and shot himself. He was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
T’Juan Butler was a firefighter for the Twinsburg Fire Department. Both of the victim’s children were in the house at the time of the murder (11 years old daughter and 7 year old son). The kids were placed in the Children Services custody, but they were released to their father. Prayers to the family and especially the children! Nobody deserves to see or hear their parents murdered!
