A white male in Tampa, Fla., is accused of going on a shooting spree in which he killed his mother’s friend and wounded his mother and his teenage daughter before firing at police officers last Wednesday.

According to court documents filed by prosecutors, the terrorist wrote a letter to his teenage daughter saying he wanted to have a romantic relationship with her before the shooting.

The incestuous terrorist, identified as 42-year-old Michael Banks, told police that he wrote a letter to his 17-year-old daughter “insisting that she enter into a relationship with him and not date anyone else,” according to court documents obtained by the Tampa Bay Times, local Fox affiliate WTVT and local NBC affiliate WFLA.

Prior to the shooting, prosecutors say Banks’ mother and her friend were in the family home discussing kicking Banks out after learning he was “pursuing a romantic relationship with his daughter,” the documents state, WTVT reports.

Prosecutors claim in the documents that upon overhearing this discussion, the white father from hell felt “betrayed and upset,” so he retrieved a revolver and brought it to the kitchen, where he then shot his mother, 60, and mother’s friend, killing the friend, according to the Times and WFLA.

Then, prosecutors allege the terrorist shot a bullet that grazed his mother’s head before going after his daughter, who was in the shower, according to reports. 

Banks’ daughter told authorities that after hearing gunshots from the bathroom, she tried to push the door to keep it closed, and the incestuous white devil shot through it “at approximately head level,” per the Times.

As the teen ran from the home, the evil peckerwood shot and wounded her leg. He then reloaded the revolver before exiting the residence through the back door, the documents state..

His mother called 911 around 12:42 p.m. on Wednesday, telling police that the incestuous pedophile had shot at her and her friend, the documents state. Police identified the slain friend as Josephine Muentes, 52.

Upon arrival, police found Banks’ mother and daughter outside of the home with gunshot wounds. 

With the reloaded revolver, the white terrorist shot at officers, and they returned fire, though no shots struck the incestuous psychopath, according to Tampa Police. No officers were injured, and Banks surrendered shortly after and was taken into police custody, police say.

Police then entered the residence and located Muentes, who was pronounced deceased on scene.

The terrorist was arrested on five charges: one count of first-degree murder with a firearm, two counts of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm, one count of attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer with a firearm and one count of illegally possessing a firearm as a felon. 

It’s not immediately clear if he has entered pleas to the charges or retained an attorney.

According to the Times, Banks has at least two prior convictions for violent crimes, including aggravated battery on a pregnant female in 2007.

He is being held in Hillsborough County jail without bond.
