JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ A man suffocated his ex-wife and girlfriend, fatally shot his boss and then turned the gun on himself as police chased him Tuesday afternoon.

Police were pursuing Tracy Moss, 26, for questioning when he pulled his BMW over and killed himself.

Authorities were not sure of the motives for the slayings.

Kenyatta Shantell Mines, 23, was found dead by family members about 8 a.m. at an apartment complex, the sheriff’s department said.

Mines was the mother of Moss’s 2-year-old son. The boy was with relatives when she was killed, police said.


Detectives then went to the home of Moss’s ex-wife, Mitzi Moss, 26, to check on her and found her dead, Chief of Detectives Frank Mackesy said. The couple’s 9-month-old son was with relatives.

Police said both women were found in their beds with plastic bags over their heads, although they are waiting for autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

Tracy Moss’s supervisor Matthew Wells, 47, was shot about 1:20 p.m. at Diversified Products Manufacturing, a company that manufacturers towing equipment. He died later at a hospital, police said.

Officers pursued Moss for about 5 miles before he killed himself.
