At around 11 a.m. , Marion County Sheriff's Department responded to a report of multiple people with gunshot wounds in Ocala National Forest.

When deputies arrived, they found a woman, identified as Jessica Johnson of Holmen and her child, both killed, as well as another man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound but still alive.
