New court documents paint a chilling picture about the man accused of murdering three family members in Pennsylvania before being captured in Trenton Saturday afternoon.
According to the newly released documents, Andre Gordon carjacked a woman in Trenton just before 9 a.m., he then drove the stolen vehicle the short distance to Falls Township, Pennsylvania to the home of his father, stepmother, and sister. Documents say Ring video captured Gordon arguing with his father. The documents state that Gordon, using the rifle he was carrying - now identified as a ghost gun - broke the glass and began firing inside. He allegedly killed his sister Kera and his stepmother Karen.
Documents say a few minutes later, Gordon showed up at the home of the mother of his two kids, Taylor Daniel, on Edgewood Lane, shooting and killing her. Daniel's mom Nancy fought back, hitting Gordon with an ax handle - Gordon hit her on the head with his rifle.
Gordon then allegedly carjacked a Honda from the Dollar Tree on Bristol Pike and made his way back to Trenton to 153 Phillips Ave. Gordon managed to evade police just before they surrounded the home. Officers then helped the many people inside that get out.
Gordon was captured five blocks away, wearing different clothes and sporting a newly shaved head, in an attempt to conceal his identity, according to authorities. Gordon's clothes that he wore while allegedly killing the three people were found inside that home.
Police also recovered the ghost gun, a high-capacity semi-automatic rifle and extended round magazines inside the home. They are believed to be used in the killings and carjackings,
A detention hearing is set for Thursday in New Jersey but will likely be delayed. Gordon faces carjacking and weapons charges in New Jersey. He will eventually be extradited to Pennsylvania to face a host of other charges, including first-degree murder.
