Man wanted in quadruple murder at Detroit gas station dies after shooting himself

DETROIT (WXYZ) - A man wanted in connection with a quadruple murder in Detroit has died after shooting himself, according to police. 

George Anthony Davis, 27, shot himself near the Ohio Turnpike after leading police on a chase. He died at the hospital, shortly before 4:00 p.m.

Police said Davis shot and killed three people, a man and two women, at a gas station in the 22000 block of Fenkell in Detroit Monday morning. 

The male victim was identified as Deacon Ralphael Hall, leader at a local church, his 26-year-old daughter Cierra Bargineer and 21-year-old Kristen Thomas.

Police say surveillance cameras captured everything; a man pulled up in a silver sedan and started talking to people in a gray Dodge SUV. 

Seconds later, the man in the sedan shot the people in the SUV and shot at the man pumping gas.

When he ran out of bullets, he went back to his car to reload, and came back to shoot more. 

Police say Bargineer was the mother of his child.

He then gets in the car and goes to a house on Faust Street, has a conversation with an adult male cousin and fatally shoots him, police said.  

The suspect left his silver sedan behind and took off in a 2007 blue Nissan Ultima.

Davis was on the run for several hours, then police say he committed a carjacking in Van Buren Township. It resulted in a police chase that went from Michigan into Ohio.  The chase ended when police say he shot himself in Perrysburg, Ohio, near Toledo. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, then died just before four Monday afternoon.
