Police: Killer of 7 was 'hunting' ex-girlfriends, relatives

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. When Rodrick Shonte Dantzler raised a gun to his head after going on a deadly shooting spree, the bullet ended what those close to him described as a troubled life in which he frequently resorted to violence and often made threats against women and relatives.

Police say the 34-year-old ex-con targeted two former girlfriends in Thursday's rampage, fatally shooting both of them and five members of their families, including his own 12-year-old daughter. He also shot and wounded two other people one of them another ex-girlfriend while leading officers on a chase through Michigan's second-largest city.

"He went out hunting these people down. It was very much a purposeful act." Police Chief Kevin Belk said Friday, describing Dantzler as mentally unstable but saying he knew of no clinical diagnosis or motive for the killings.

1. They always seem so nice and normal, dont they?

"He seemed normal," said Jannelle Windemuller, who lived across the street and a few houses down from Dantzler's modest, lime-green house. He often frolicked in the grassy front yard with daughter Kamrie, who was killed in the rampage, and his two pit bulls. He would wave when driving or walking by, she said.

Nichole Martin, another neighbor,... said, she "thought he was such a nice guy."
