Florida infant dies after mother's murder-suicide post on Facebook

A 6-month-old Florida boy died from gunshot wounds after his mother went on Facebook and wrote that she was going to shoot herself and the child.

Family members called 911 on Friday to report the post from 20-year-old Melanie Reyes, Fox 51 reported. When police arrived at her home in Ocala, they found Reyes and her son, Jonah Mendoza, with gunshot wounds.

No one else was found inside the home, and police recovered a handgun at the scene. Jonah died after being taken to a local hospital, while Reyes survived and is in critical condition, Fox 51 reported.

Reyes has been involved in an ongoing custody dispute with the boy’s father, Jordan Mendoza, the Gainesville Sun reported.
