Anniston Man Commits Murder Suicide


A six-month-old infant is dead after being shot by her father before he turned the gun on himself in Ohatchee. 23-year-old Trenton Gordon of Anniston also shot the child’s great-grandfather in the arm and hand during a domestic dispute with the child’s mother early Sunday afternoon.

According to Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade, although there was a protection order of abuse against Gordon filed by the child’s mother, Gordon took the child anyway. Sheriff Wade says this murder-suicide was no accident.

The incident took place on Kirksey Bend Road just off Highway 77. The grandfather was transported to a hospital in Birmingham where his condition is unknown at this time.
