Attacker On The Loose
Police say last night 21-year-old Bryan Bearrow paid his ex-girlfriend a visit at work despite court orders not to be near her. That visit almost ended in murder. Now police are looking for the attacker.
According to police, the female, whose name they can't release was working at Claire's at the mall, when her ex boyfriend who she has a child with stopped by and brought her coffee.
Bearrow's house sits in a quiet Umatilla neighborhood, almost an hour away from where police say he tried to kill his ex's current boyfriend Joshua Hankin.
Neighbors say the attack seems out of character.
"He's never acted like what they say he's done," said Bill Warmus, neighbor. "I've never known him to be aggressive like that."
As the victim's girlfriend got off work at the Paddock mall, she began to talk to the victim, her current boyfriend until she saw her ex boyfriend run across the parking lot with a gun in his hand.
"The facts indicate when you step out and you point a gun, and it does have ammunition in it at a person and pull the trigger twice...the intent to commit murder does seem to be present," said Sgt. Angy Scroble with the Ocala Police Department.
Luckily for Hankin, the gun never went off.
Hankin managed to get the gun away from Bearrow, and the men fought until Bearrow drove away in his car leaving police to search for him, and neighbors to wonder what happened.
Police say that after Bearrow left the scene. He sent his ex-girlfriend a text saying all I wanted to do was to love you, now I have to kill myself.
Police are searching for Bearrow who faces charges of attempted first degree murder and violation of an injunction for domestic violence.
