First Coast News reports that the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office on Saturday night identified the suspect as Jacoby Lamar King. Authorities said that the 26-year-old shot and killed his 33-year-old ex-boyfriend, Ryan Mark Chesser and Eric James Bryant before turning the gun on himself.

The sheriff’s office said the early morning shooting happened hours after King spotted Bryant and Chesser out with two other individuals. Authorities said that King then followed the group back to Chesser’s home where he shot four people before killing himself.
