A Woman In Florida Says That God Told Her To Shoot Drivers On The Interstate Because Of The Eclipse

Because of the total solar eclipse, a woman in Florida says she went on a killing spree because God told her to.

There was an active shooter situation on Monday, April 8, when 22-year-old Taylon Nichelle Celestine got on Florida’s Interstate 10 at the 112-mile marker, according to a news statement from the Florida Highway Patrol.

Within 5 miles of getting on the interstate, Celestine, who was born and raised in Georgia, is said to have started firing “multiple shots into another vehicle” after telling hotel staff she was going on a shooting spree “directed by God in relation to the solar eclipse.”

The police said that the bullets hit the moving car “multiple times,” hitting the driver with “glass fragments from the window and a bullet grazed on the arm.”

The driver was able to get away by steering onto the shoulder of the road. Near the 107-mile sign, Celestine is said to have started shooting at another car, hitting the driver in the neck.

News of someone “shooting into other vehicles” was sent to Washington County Communications, which is how the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office learned about the shooting spree.

An official from the police department said on Facebook that a Florida Highway Patrol officer saw Celestine get off the highway and “head toward a rest area.”

“The car then turned around and tried to get back on the interstate.” “The suspect’s car pulled over after the trooper started a traffic stop,” the notice says.

When police arrived, Celestine was “taken into custody without incident,” the police department said.

An AR-15 and a 9mm handgun were found in Celestine’s car, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. She was charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon, and improper discharge of a firearm.

“Right now, it looks like there are two victims.” “One has been cleared and released, and the other is getting medical care,” the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office said, adding that there is “no threat to the community remaining.”

A lot of people have asked the department for more details.
The Florida Highway Patrol Bureau of Investigations and Intelligence (BCII) is still looking into what happened.
