(CNN) -- A 20-year-old Florida woman was in critical condition Friday after she shot and killed her 6-month-old son and then turned the gun on herself, police said.
Authorities found Melanie Reyes and her baby after performing a welfare check at the request of Reyes' family, who called 911 to report a statement on her Facebook page in which she "indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself," according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
Both were transported to a hospital, where the infant was pronounced dead.
Police recovered the handgun believed used in the shootings from the home.
The incident comes roughly two weeks after Reyes was arrested for aggravated domestic battery after her boyfriend said she struck him with a baseball bat, according to a police report. Her next court date had been scheduled for January 22.
Guns for everybody! Guns for all! Guns are a gawd given right!
Seriously, wtf is it about Florida? Is there something in the water that makes people crazier than shithouse rats?
The world of a heterosexual is a sick and boring life.
Does Florida have higher lead levels than the other 49 states?
Heterosexualism leads to this behavior.
Another mother who thinks it's the ultimate revenge to get back at her boyfriend or husband by killing his son.
If only that infant had been armed, this wouldn't have happened
Another victim of video games.
Kid is wearing on last nerve. Doesn't he know his mommy's hardcore, bitch? ROFLMAO.
Everything old is new again.
its because she was never made to say the Lord's Prayer in school everyday. And Obama. It's his fault.
Wonder why she decided to post about it on Facebook?
Does everything have to be announced online today?
R12 failing to kill yourself can sometimes be a cry for attention. Facebook adds another level to that.
R13, this wasn't just someone who attempted suicide - it's not all about her. She murdered her own son, too.
Why do people keep including "Florida" in these stories. It should be assumed that any such items deal with Florida, unless otherwise stated.
We wish we could be in Florida, R15.
R14 of course its not all about her, but she may not see it that way. Someone who does something this fucked up is not rational. If killing the boy was to spite the father, then her motives are even more selfish.
Medea goes to jail.
Obama made her do it, so he could pass more laws to take away our guns!
