Man posts picture of child on Facebook moments before murder-suicide
Minutes after posting a photo of his baby daughter online, 22-year-old Merrick McKoy shot and killed her, then turned the gun on himself.
The crime unfolded on social media after the child’s mother awoke Monday morning to her estranged boyfriend standing over her bed with a gun.
The mom fought with her jealous ex-beau and fled to a neighboring apartment where she desperately called 911, cops said. When police arrived on scene, an officer entered to find Merrick McKoy and little Mia with gunshot wounds, police said.
McKoy posted his plot on Facebook writing “don’t judge me I had no choice” and “I told u I can’t live without u lol u thought I was joking now me n Mia out this b****,” shortly before shooting the 19-month-old. Both McKoy and his daughter were rushed to the hospital, but Mckoy was the lone survivor.
There are some sick people in this world.
Our condolences go out to baby McKoy’s mother and family.
