Fla. Police: Danville Man Kills Nephew, Shoots Niece, Commits Suicide

Posted: Updated:

POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — A Danville man visiting Polk City, Florida, committed suicide after killing his nephew and shooting his niece Saturday night, according to police.

WFLA reports here that Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says Rickie Stipe of Danville fatally shot his nephew James Hanks and shot and wounded Hanks wife, Kathleen. Judd said an argument between Stipe and his wife, Carolyn, preceded the shooting. 

Rickie Stipe then shot himself, Judd said.

Kathleen Hanks was taken to an area hospital. Her condition was not known.

Carolyn Stipe also was transported to a hospital with chest pains.

“It’s sad. Anytime you have a murder, it breaks your heart, but here you have someone like this uncle, who was a guest, visiting from Kentucky,” said Judd. “He shoots and kills his nephew, and then as his niece runs to the aid of her husband, he shoots her too … then himself. And his wife sees all of this. It’s just horrific”
