Ohatchee Murder-Suicide Investigation

OHATCHEE, AL (WBRC) - The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office say a registered sex offender is dead after allegedly killed his daughter and shot the child’s great-grandfather Saturday afternoon.

Sheriff Matthew Wade says a call of a domestic disturbance was received around 1 p.m. on Kirksey Bend Road just off Highway 77 in Ohatchee.

Authorities say 23-year-old Trenton Gordon, of Anniston, got into an argument with two men then shot the child’s maternal great-grandfather and ran away with the baby. Sheriff Wade said Jordon shot his daughter then turned the gun on himself.

“It’s disturbing, it’s disturbing to me, it’s disturbing to the deputies. It’s just very, very sad, you know, the only thing I know to do is to pray for the mother, as she laid there, weeping with her child,” Sheriff Wade said.
