After witnessing the murder of  at least three people, a nine-year-old girl called 911 to inform them of a murder-suicide in Brooklyn.

According to officers who responded to the call, two people were discovered on the hallway floor and another was on the floor of the living room, all who were pronounced dead at the scene. Additionally, officers also discovered the suspect with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. 

Two firearms were found near his body, which was near the apartment in a walkway. 

The victims were later identified as Chloe Spears, 16, Solei Spears, 20, and Rasheeda Barzey, 45 while the suspect has been identified as Joseph McCrimon, 46.

More details on the case have not yet been released to the public, though it is clear that the child who made the 911 call was unharmed in the shooting.
