November 16, 2015 -- A grandfather killed in a triple suicide-homicide was remembered by a friend as a compassionate, church-going man.

Also killed was the victim's infant twin granddaughters.

The gunman killed himself after shooting the mother of the girls. 22-year-old Megan Hiatt survived.

Dead are 5-month-old twin girls Hayden Rose Hiatt and Kayden Reese Hiatt; and the girls' grandfather Travis James Hiatt, 49.

The suspected killer who committed suicide is Gawain Rushane Wilson, 28.

The  mother remains in critical condition.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Travis James Hiatt was an active member of a church in Arlington with Traci Bunkley. The two served together in the same program for the last five years.

She said "Jimmy" Hiatt was a caring and dedicated father and grandfather who would do anything for his children.
Bunkley said he was especially caring to his 22-year-old daughter Megan, who Bunkley says was having trouble with her boyfriend "Rush" Wilson.

“She had moved out a time or two and found herself needing to be out again,” Bunkley said. “A relative called and said that she was moving out, and he came home from work before they expected him,” Bunkley said.

Police say Wilson shot Megan Hiatt, their two twin daughters and Megan’s father, before shooting himself. Megan was the only survivor. Bunkley says Megan was shot multiple times.
“She did survive the three surgeries last night. She lost an eye, having been shot in the head,” Bunkley said. “She has a long recovery, but her family is staying right by her.”

Bunkley says Jimmy Hiatt was so happy to have recently become a grandfather to twins Reese and Rose, who were only 5 months old.

“He was so proud. I think the best picture of him probably that I have ever seen -- he's holding both of those girls right in his lap. He's smiling,” Bunkley said.

  1. Burn coal and the whole family pays the toll.

  2. I would like to leave this to ponder.

    Burt Hammersmith: Let me tell you something. And you listen close too, because it might be something you need to know.
    Paul Edgecomb: I'm listening.
    Burt Hammersmith: We had us a dog. Just a sweet mongrel, You know the kind. Well, in many ways, a good mongrel dog is like a negro. You get to know it. Often, you get to love it. It is of no particular use, but you keep it around because you *think* it loves you. If you're lucky, Mr. Edgecomb, you'll never have to find out any different. My wife and I were not so lucky. Caleb, come here for a second. Come here. Please, son.
    [he turns his son's face to Paul to reveal Caleb is missing an eye]
    Burt Hammersmith: He still has the one good eye. I suppose he's lucky not to be completely blind. We get down on our knees and thank God for that much at least, right Caleb? Okay, go on in now.
    [turns back to Paul]
    Burt Hammersmith: That dog attacked my boy for no reason. Just got it in his mind one day. Same with John Coffey. He was sorry afterwards. Of that, I have no doubt. But those little girls stayed raped and murdered. Maybe he'd never done it before. My dog never bit before, but I didn't concern myself with that. I went out there with my rifle, grabbed his collar and blew his brains out. Is Coffey guilty? Yes he is. Don't you doubt it, and don't you turn your back on him. You may get away with it once or even a hundred times. But in the end, you'll get bit.
