MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) - A man is behind bars after he fatally shot his ex-girlfriend and wounded one other after he forced his way into her home in Palmetto on Sunday, police said.

Flozell Murrell III, 41, was arrested in connection with the death of his ex-girlfriend, 41-year-old Stephanie McNabb, and for shooting at and assaulting 26-year-old Thomas Bell.

Palmetto police responded to a home in the 1100 block of 17th Ave. W. at about 1 a.m. following reports of a possible assault and shooting in progress.

When officers arrived, police said they found McNabb semi-conscious with apparent gunshot wounds and Bell with a laceration to the head, which did not require medical attention.

Police said three other adults and two children, an infant and a 2-year-old, were at the home when the shooting occurred.

McNabb was taken to Blake Medical Center, where she later died.

Murrell is accused of forcing entry into the home and shooting McNabb. He also shot at Bell, but the 26-year-old was not hit by bullets, police said.

According to police, Murrell and Bell struggled, but the suspect managed to break free and ran away from the scene.

He was located hours later and taken into custody.

The sheriff's office noted that Murrell and McNabb previously "had a long-standing domestic relationship," but the two "were not currently in a relationship and he did not live in the home."
