OCALA, Fla. - Detectives say a 22-year-old north Florida man who had recently been released from prison fatally shot his grandmother and great-grandmother and injured another woman after taking her car keys.
The shooting happened early Sunday in Ocala. Marion County Sheriff's deputies arrested Azael Angel Stevens a short time later in the car he took from 47-year-old Jacqueline Gonzalez.
Authorities have not released the names of the two dead women. But they say Stevens shot Gonzalez in the face and she was taken to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
The Ocala Star-Banner reports Stevens had been raised by his grandmother and great-grandmother.
The newspaper reports Steven had returned home Friday after being released from prison in July. He now faces two counts of felony murder among other charges.
