*Here’s more proof the world is going to hell in an hand-basket on a bullet train.

In Northside, Florida, police say Gawain Rushane Wilson, 28, shot his girlfriend Megan Hiatt, 22, their twin 5-month-old babies and Hiatt’s father Travis, 49, before shooting himself, Jacksonville.com reports. Hiatt is the only survivor of the shooting and is currently in critical condition at UF Jacksonville Hospital.

Here’s the really horrendous part. Hiatt’s mother Melissa Bateh told First Coast News her daughter said Wilson made her hold the babies while he shot them. “He wanted to destroy her world. He wanted her to watch it be destroyed,” Bateh said. She believes Hiatt was shot at least five times while Wilson killed the babies. She lost part of her breast in the shooting.

Though her daughter is in the hospital recovering physically and mentally, Bateh said Hiatt wants to spread her story. She told First Coast News Wilson had allegedly been abusive to Hiatt for months — he reportedly called her fat after she’d just given birth to twins and often broke things in the house when he was angry. Bateh doesn’t think Wilson ever struck her daughter.
