TRENTON, N.J. (PBN) Andre Gordon, 26, was found walking through the streets of Trenton and trying to blend in with the crowd early Saturday evening after two separate shootings left three of his family members dead and two different communities terrorized for hours, police said. It all began Saturday around 8:30 a.m. on Southard Street. Gordon stole a woman’s vehicle and drove it to a home on Viewpoint Lane in Levittown, Pennsylvania, around 8:50 a.m. and broke inside the house, according to officials. Gordon then allegedly shot and killed his 52-year-old stepmother, Karen Gordon, as well as his 13-year-old sister, Kera Gordon, inside the home. Three other family members, including another 13-year-old, were also inside the home at the time, officials said. Gordon searched for the other three family members but left after he couldn’t find them, according to investigators. Shortly after, around 9 a.m., Gordon broke into another home about two miles away on Edgewood Lane in Levittown, investigators said. Once inside, he killed the mother of his two children, 25-year-old Taylor Daniel, according to officials. Their two children were also inside the home as well as Daniel’s mother and a fourth family member. Police said Gordon bludgeoned Daniel’s mother with his weapon. She is currently recovering at the hospital. Officials believe Gordon was armed with an AR-15-style weapon during the two incidents. Police said Gordon then carjacked another person at gunpoint in the parking lot of the Dollar General store on the 1200 block of Bristol Pike in Morrisville, Pennsylvania. The driver was not injured. Investigators said they later recovered the stolen vehicle, a 2016 dark gray Honda CRV. Investigators later determined that Gordon was barricaded inside a home with other people inside on the 100 block of Phillips Avenue in Trenton, Police and SWAT team members arrived and surrounded the home at 10:30 a.m., at one point breaking the windows and throwing tear gas inside. Police tried to contact Gordon inside the home but were unable to. At some point, investigators learned that Gordon was no longer inside the house, however.

“He was at that house at one point but before we were able to establish a perimeter, he slipped out,” Trenton Police Director Steven Wilson said. “At some point, we did receive information that the suspect may be on the street.”

Gordon was later found by police unarmed and walking on New York Avenue in Trenton around 5 p.m., according to investigators.
