In the 911 call, the daughter stated her boyfriend, Pierre Odnis Bernard, 23, shot her and her mother and then fled the area in his vehicle.

“Please, I’m losing a lot of blood,” the daughter said during the 911 call. “Can I please have an ambulance? My boyfriend came in and shot me and my mom. My mom is dead.”

The boyfriend was later found dead with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Ocoee police said.
