Veteran believed to have PTSD shot himself in the head Friday in Ohio on Facebook live, after shooting his girlfriend and fatally shooting her 5-year-old son.
The girlfriend, 27, survived but was in critical condition.
Jonovie Mclendon Jr., 33, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
In the video, McIendon says, "Sorry people, its been a long day .. It was nice knowing you, but it's time, people. I love you all."
1010 WINS has reached out to Facebook for comment.
Police in Miami Township said it received a call from a man who said he planned to kill his girlfriend, her son and himself, Police Chief Ron Hess said.
“We believe as soon as he called regional dispatch….that he shot himself,” Hess said, reported the Dayton Daily News.
Police said he made multiple calls to officials. In one call received by authorities, Mclendon told dispatchers he spent three-and-a-half years serving overseas and was "just tired."
He said "I'm just saying I'm sorry" after telling the officers he'd killed both his girlfriend and her son, officials said.
Facebook users who saw the video on Facebook Live also called 9-1-1.
McIendon lived in an apartment with his girlfriend and her son, police said.
