Andre Gordon, 26, “surrendered himself peacefully”Lisette Ríos, spokesperson for the Trenton Police Department, the capital of New Jerseyafter an episode that triggered shelter orders for residents of two states in the country.

Authorities said Gordon, who is believed to be homeless, started the day by stealing a car in Trenton before driving about 65 kilometers to a home in the suburb of Levittown, north of Philadelphia, in the neighboring state of Pennsylvania. There the police identified two fatal victims of the suspect: his 52-year-old stepmother and his 13-year-old sister.

Others three people managed to hide “while he went around the house looking for them”Bucks County (Pennsylvania) District Attorney Jennifer Schorn told reporters. The suspect then drove to another nearby residence where he shot and He killed a 25-year-old woman with whom he has two childrenbefore using the butt of his rifle to hit the victim’s mother.

After those events, Gordon stole a utility vehicle from the parking lot of a nearby store to drive back across the state line to Trenton. The owner of the vehicle was not injured, according to Falls Township (Pennsylvania) Sheriff Nelson Whitney. Police believe that once in Trenton, the suspect barricaded himself in a three-story home.

Whitney had said that the man was believed to be armed with an AR-15 type assault rifle, and described it as “extremely dangerous.” “Andre, stay away from the windows. We know you’re inside, if you want to surrender call 911 now,” the police told him through a megaphone. “You are a young man, you have a lot to live for.” Gordon was later “located at another location in Trenton,” spokeswoman Rios said.

The Trenton Police Director said that Gordon was not injured and was walking down the street when an officer approached him. It is unknown if the suspect was at the home where police believed he was barricaded. Rios added that the people in the home “were successfully evacuated and unharmed.” Because he crossed state lines, federal authorities, including the FBI, assisted in the case.
