Officers arrived on scene to discover a 39-year-old female and a 33-year-old female deceased, and a 16-year-old female injured, all with apparent gunshot wounds.

Officers then located the suspect, identified as 38-year-old Jason Neo Bourne, armed with a handgun, barricaded in a nearby vehicle, with a 12-year-old male being held as a hostage inside the vehicle.

As officers attempted a de-escalation dialogue with the suspect, the suspect held his firearm to the juvenile’s head, resulting in an officer-involved shooting. 

Officers extricated the juvenile from the vehicle and immediately began life saving measures however, he succumbed to his injuries at the scene, along with the suspect.
