Police: Man lies in wait before brutally killing his wife, and later, their young children and himself

SANFORD, Florida — Authorities say a central Florida man killed his estranged wife and two young children before fatally shooting himself as police pursued him.

Authorities say the spree began late Sunday, April 17th when 30-year-old Henry Ramone Brown waited in the trunk of Chericia Brown's vehicle, outside a Chili's restaurant.

In a news release, Seminole County Sheriff's officials said Brown stabbed her and ran over her with his car. She was taken to a hospital where she died.

Officials say Brown picked up the couple's children, ages four and one, from a babysitter and drove to Central Florida Regional Hospital to find Chericia Brown. He was confronted by deputies and Sanford police, fired at them and ran from the hospital.

Deputies located him on Interstate 4 and used stop sticks on his vehicle. Inside they found the bodies of Brown and the children.
