Man Fatally Shot Woman and Infant Son in Deerfield Beach, Critically Injured After Shooting Himself

Deerfield Beach, FL – A tragic incident unfolded early Thursday morning in Deerfield Beach, leaving a woman and her infant son dead in what authorities are calling a double murder and attempted suicide. The Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) has identified the suspect as 27-year-old Andre Lanns, who remains in critical condition after an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The shooting was reported around 5:45 a.m. in the 4000 block of Eastridge Drive. Deputies responding to the scene found Lanns lying in the street, suffering from a gunshot wound that appeared to be self-inflicted. He was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment, where he remains in critical condition as of Friday.

Inside a nearby home, deputies discovered the bodies of 26-year-old Marrina Guadagnino and her infant son, Andre Lanns III. Both victims had been shot to death, leading officials to classify the incident as a double homicide.

BSO officials stated that an arrest warrant has been issued for Lanns on two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the killings of Guadagnino and their infant son. Once Lanns’ condition stabilizes, he will be formally charged and taken into custody.

The motives behind the shooting remain unclear as investigators continue to piece together the events leading up to the tragedy. Neighbors and family members are left in shock, struggling to comprehend the violence that shattered their community.

“I just can’t believe it,” said a neighbor who wished to remain anonymous. “They seemed like a normal family. It’s heartbreaking to think something like this could happen.”

BSO detectives are urging anyone with information about the incident to come forward as they continue their investigation. The agency has also extended its condolences to the families affected by this devastating event.

This tragic incident highlights the ongoing issue of domestic violence and its far-reaching impacts. Community leaders are emphasizing the importance of seeking help and support for those experiencing domestic abuse.

As the investigation continues, the Deerfield Beach community mourns the loss of Marrina Guadagnino and her young son, Andre Lanns III, while hoping for justice and answers in the wake of this horrific event.
