Quinton Hunter Bio – Quinton Hunter Wiki
Quinton Hunter entered the building after the meeting started and shot Ian Greenfield in proximity, “mortally wounding him,” according to the Edgewater Police Department.
Quinton Hunter is 59 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
A Florida man fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and a man she’d just started seeing before turning the gun on himself.
According to Edgewater Police, Quinton Hunter walked into the building where Bridging the Gap, a faith-based non-profit organization, is headquartered on Monday evening at about 7 p.m.
Inside the building, some 20 people had met for a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, reads a statement from police.
The meeting was well underway when Hunter walked in “and shot Ian Greenfield at close proximity, mortally wounding him.”
The statement says that investigators “believe Quinton Hunter was angry over a relationship Greenfield had with Hunter’s former girlfriend, Erica Hoffman, the second victim in this case.”
None of the other people at the meeting was injured and fled to safety.
After shooting Greenfield, “Hunter prevented Erica Hoffman from leaving and the incident evolved into a hostage situation,” the statement says.
SWAT teams and hostage negotiators were summoned to contact Hunter, but “there was no response from inside the building.”
Police breached the rear of the building, and “Greenfield, Hoffman, and Hunter were located deceased in the meeting room.”
At a press conference, an Edgewater police official said that “jealousy” likely propelled Hunter’s violent actions.
Greenfield and Hoffman both died from gunshot wounds and lacerations. Hunter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
In a statement posted to Facebook, Bridging the Gap expressed that the organization is “deeply saddened” by the double murder-suicide.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who are affected by this terrible tragedy,” reads the statement.
The organization has closed for a few days but notes they “hope to begin serving the community again later this week.”
