A three-year-old girl has been confirmed as the youngest victim of a mass shooting in Plymouth,
Five people were killed by Jake Davison, 22, as he rampaged through a quiet residential area last night.
Police have now revealed the ages of the victims but have not yet identified them as officers are still trying to trace their families.
The first person killed in the massacre was a woman, 51, who was known to Davison.
She was shot in a property in Biddick Drive in the Keyham area.
Davison then went outside and ‘immediately’ shot the girl and a male relative, 43, who was with her at the time.
Using what was described as a ‘pump action shotgun’, Davison then shot and killed another man, aged 59, in nearby parkland.
After shooting and fatally injuring a 66-year-old woman in Henderson Place, he turned the weapon on himself.
Police have revealed that he also shot two other local residents in Biddick Drive who are being treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries. They are aged 53 and 33, and are known to each other.
Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said police believe Davison had a familial relationship with the first female victim.
But it’s not known if any of the other victims were known to Davison, raising fears that they were targeted at random.
Police have so far been unable to determine the motive for the attack, the first mass shooting on UK soil for 11 years.
Davison had expressed support for American gun culture and misogynistic ‘Incel’ groups on his YouTube channel.
But Mr Sawyer said: ‘We are not considering terrorism or a relationship with any far-right group.’
