Authorities say a man who spent time in prison a decade ago for the shooting death of his young son killed six of his grandchildren, his adult daughter and himself in a rampage at a home in the small Florida town of Bell.

Don Spirit called 911 Thursday afternoon. Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz says Spirit committed suicide when a deputy arrived. The bodies of his daughter and her six children were found on the property.

Jail records show that his daughter, Sarah Lorraine Spirit, had been on probation for a 2013 grand theft arrest.

Don Spirit had a criminal record in Tampa, where he was arrested in 1990 on a felony fugitive warrant. Other arrests include misdemeanor battery, drug charges and depriving a child of food and shelter.
