A crazed gunman caused panic in a small Florida town after he shot his ex-wife, girlfriend, and her father dead. The tragedy occurred on the morning of May 3 in Green Cove Springs, just over 30 miles south of Jacksonville.
The victims have been named as Valorie Short, Waylon "Buddy" Short and Erica Green, Lancaster's ex-wife.
Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler told the media that officers believe that Lancaster abducted his girlfriend Valorie Short from her job at a nail salon in Green Cove Springs, according to First Coast News.
Beseler says that Lancaster took Short to an area close to the Magnolia Golf Course in the town. He then "lured" her father, Waylon Short, to the area. When there, Beseler said Lancaster shot them both dead. He then drove to a home on Rosemary Hill Road in Green Cove Springs, there, Beseler said he killed his ex-wife Erica Green.
WJXT reporter Vic Micolucci tweeted that Lancaster is the nephew of former Clay County Sheriff Scott Lancaster.
