George Mason, III was accidentally hit by a truck when he was trying to kill off his family. He shot three dead and was about to shoot a fourth.


Mason III, 42, is clinging to life after being struck in the middle of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in the town of Brooksville as he chased after his half-brother, Gabriel Taylor, 33.

Taylor was shot several times, including once in the head, and is in critical condition, police said…

The grisly violence broke out just before 9 p.m. Friday, when Mason killed his grandmother, 81-year-old Jannie Taylor, and brother, Ralph Peyton, 29, inside a home at 820 Peach St. in Brooksville, about 50 miles north of Tampa.

Next, he shot and killed Tarasha Townsend, the 37-year-old mother of his two children, as the woman walked up to the home to find out what all the noise was about, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Hearing the commotion, Taylor took off with Mason in pursuit, shooting wildly. He hit his mark several times before an unsuspecting driver hit Mason some 300 yards away from the home.[su_sky_ad]

      Too bad karma doesn’t have quicker timing. Life in prison, no parole, if he lives.

    and they are going to waste time and energy trying to help the creep? Put him in the hall on a gurney and go out for cafe.

    Maybe he felt threatened by his unarmed 81-year-old grandma. It’s too bad he isn’t white in the “stand yer ground” state. IF so, he’d probably get a slap on the wrist and then be released. Unfortunately, If he recovers he’ll probably be tried, convicted and executed all in the same day.

      tried and convicted as he should be. i hope that he doesn’t get the death penalty, there’s no punishment in death. let him rot in prison.
