New information was released today in the shootings that left two dead and five injured in east Gainesville on Monday afternoon.

In a press conference this morning, police released the victims names and health conditions. The suspect's father, Clifford Lewis Miller Sr., 52, died; Anthony Mitchell, 44, and Lloyd Dunn, 67, were in fair condition as of Tuesday morning. The other three victims, Vincent Sallet, 43; Paul Anthony Sr., 43; and Cedric Joiner, 36, are in critical condition as of Tuesday morning.

The shooter, Clifford Miller Jr., 24, drove around in a red Chevrolet truck and fired on the victims with a .38 caliber revolver. He then died after shooting himself in the head at a residence on SE 46th Terrace.

Cpl. Tscharna Senn, Gainesville Police spokeswoman, said he had to stop and reload at some point but would not speculate on whether the crimes were pre-meditated. She said that the relationship between the suspect and the victims is not yet clear.

In 2005, Miller was arrested for cocaine possession. In August 2006 and again in April 2008 he was arrested for violating probation.

In April 2009, he was arrested for a DUI when he refused to sign the citation. He was arrested twice in November for failing to appear in court. In March he was found mentally unable to stand trial.

Welcome to the discussion.
