Investigators say the woman and her boyfriend were watching her son’s soccer game when they were confronted by her ex-husband, who was also watching the game. The ex-husband reportedly walked up to the couple in the parking lot and opened fire on them before driving away.
Video of the incident shows dozens of adults and children scrambling for cover as the shooting unfolded.
“I was on the bench. I was watching the game. I heard the first gunshot,” said one of the soccer players. “I looked around to see what was happening. I thought a car had crashed or a wheel exploded or something like that. I saw the guy pick up the gun and started shooting both the woman and the man.”
When police arrived at the scene, the boyfriend was already ruled dead while the mother was transported to a hospital where she and her unborn child passed away. The ex-husband was tracked down hours later where he was discovered with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Investigators later learned the ex-husband had texted relatives that he planned on committing suicide. It is currently unclear if he was the father of the two children playing in the soccer tournament or the unborn child.
