A 24-year-old man is believed to have killed his girlfriend and her mother, then fatally shot himself after a SWAT standoff at a far northeast Dallas apartment complex Sunday, police said.
Officials reacted about 4:30 p.m. Sunday to a report of a functioning shooter at the loft in the 9800 square of Summerwood Circle. As they moved toward the structure, somebody terminated at them, breaking a window of a crew vehicle.
The officials hid and required a SWAT group. Police didn’t release their weapons and no officials were harmed, police said.
Smack officials set up a border and made a few endeavors to get the shooter to give up, police said. They entered the loft around 7 p.m. also, discovered three individuals dead.
I pray for our victims. I am also inspired by the bravery shown by units yesterday, as they were immediately met with rifle fire (a round lodging in the headrest). An example of the dangers our officers face daily, as they respond to tragedy. Be safe my brothers and sisters. pic.twitter.com/FRHDCeyvjF

Police distinguished them Monday as Tamiko Merriwether, 55, her girl Marietta Matthews, 26, and Nathan Rashad James, 24. Matthews was involved with James and lived with him at the condo, police said.
HERE IS THE VIDEO – WARNING EXTREMELY GRAPHIC
Police said the ladies kicked the bucket from shot injuries and James passed on from what seemed, by all accounts, to be a self-perpetrated gunfire wound.
The police division’s extraordinary examinations unit will direct a subsequent examination, police said.
Police Chief Eddie García said on Twitter that he was petitioning God for the people in question and that he was roused by his officials’ grit in reacting to the episode.
A disturbing video is making the rounds on social media this morning, it appears to show the aftermath of a man shooting and killing his girlfriend and another woman. And in an extended version shows the man asking people to “like” the disturbing video.
The video first began making the rounds on Twitter last night. In the video, a man videos his home, where two women are lying in a pool of blood. The man says he’s “sorry” and then adds that he shot the women to “protect himself.”
Then, MTO News learned that the man does the inexplicable. He goes over to one of the women and picks up her head – showing the graphic gunshot wound to her head.

The video is so disturbing that Twitter has quickly deleted it from the social media platform. Unfortunately, it was picked up elsewhere.
MTO News is still trying to uncover details about the man – and has forwarded the video to police in Atlanta, where social media reports claim the man lives.
So far, we have not received any details on whether the man was apprehended by police.
