Pinellas Park police say a woman witnessed a terrifying murder-suicide attempt involving her fiancé and son.
It happened late Wednesday night at the Town Place Suites on 49th Street.
According to police, the family was staying in the motel because their home caught fire.
Just before 10 p.m., Anthony McClaney Jr. walked into the motel room and shot his mother's fiance, Mitchell Arnold, killing him.
The mother then told police that McClaney Jr. told her he was going to "meet Jesus mama" and shot himself in the head.
He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and police said Thursday that his condition was grave.
Police say the shooter has a history of mental illness.
