Police: Long Island Man Kills Ex, Self In Apartment With Three Kids

BAY SHORE, NY (WCBS 880) – Police on Long Island say a man fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself during a dispute over visitation rights.

They say a 12-year-old boy, a 5-year-old girl and a 3-month-old girl were in the Bay Shore apartment at the time but were not injured.

Police say 27-year-old Jason Jenkins entered the apartment at Spruce Street and 3rd Avenue at 1 a.m. Tuesday with a shotgun and got into a dispute with Sanita Williams over visitation rights involving the infant. Police say they were the infant’s parents.

Williams lived in the apartment with her 31-year-old sister, who police say jumped from the second-story window during the shooting, breaking her leg.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the two older children belonged to the 26-year-old Williams or her sister.

      I don’t think they’re white. Williams is also a black name you know.

    2. lydia says:

      When you respond with “whitey” instead of “white”, it shows that you are just as racist. But at least you admit it. Kudos on that.

    He should’ve been sent to SPACE CAMP immediately, for at least 2 years. Prisons are no longer deterrents to criminals, wife bashers, etc. Space will set them free.

    Relationships nowadays are so messy. People got together, got knocked up and then got separated. It’s usually cases like these that end up with people being killed. The earth is over-populated because of this behavior. Why bring children into this world to suffer???

    racist

  10. Patrick says:

    what was your comment when the sicko killed those people in the pharmacy? Was it oh no whitey is at it again? Get a life stop making everything a race issue. You are probably and uneducated jerk with no girlfriend that lives home with mom.

    1. patricks mom says:

      Wow Patrick shame on you for bringing race up a mother is dead and 2 kids witness this omg you have sunk to a new low.

  11. Nec says:

    A majority of these types of people never acknowledge having kids and want nothing to do with them. Surprising that he wanted more visitation rights.
