Home / National News / LISTEN: 911 Call of Florida Man Who Shot Entire Family


(BELL, Fla.) — A chilling 911 call reveals the moments after a Florida man shot his entire family in cold blood before committing suicide.

Don Spirit of Bell, Florida, turned the gun on himself after police arrived at the scene of the crime at his mobile home last week where they found seven other bodies, including that of Spirit’s infant granddaughter.

“Yes, ma’am, I just shot my daughter and shot all my grandkids and I’ll be sitting on my step, and when you get here I’m going to shoot myself,” Spirit, 51, said during the call, obtained Tuesday by ABC News.

Spirit was eerily calm as he gave the dispatcher his address, but refused to answer some of her questions.

“It doesn’t matter what kind of gun I got,” he said. “They’re all dead. When you get here, I’ll shoot myself and then you figure out what kind of gun I have.”

He refused to stay on the line until help arrived and committed suicide shortly after officers got there.

The victims include Bell’s 28-year-old daughter, Sarah Lorraine Spirit, and her six children, including a baby girl born in June.
