Man shot child's mother before turning gun on himself

SUAMICO, Wis. (WBAY) - A man opened fire on his child's mother in Suamico Monday morning before turning the gun on himself, the Brown County Sheriff's Office says.


The suspect, 28-year-old Sebastian Royal, made an apparent confession in a Facebook Live video he recorded prior to the shooting.

Deputies were called to a home on Mystic Hills Terrace, just north of Lineville Road, at about 2:25 a.m. The victim's mother had called 911 to report her daughter, Brooke Fontaine, had been shot in the head.

Brown County Sheriff's Office Capt. Dave Poteat says Sebastian Royal had approached the home and fired multiple rounds into the bedroom of Brooke Fontaine's 4-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Brooke Fontaine's mother had been staying in the same room as the child. She shielded her grandchild. That's when Brooke Fontaine entered the room.

"Came up to the window, saw Mr. Royal, again yelling at him to stop, and she was shot in the head," Poteat says.

Fontaine, 34, was taken to a hospital where she died Monday morning. Royal was dead at the scene of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.


The Sheriff's Office says Royal and Fontaine had been involved in a custody dispute in Outagamie County involving their 14-month-old child.

"Immediately prior to the shooting, Mr. Royal recorded an apology, an explanation for his son via Facebook Live," Poteat says. "Mr. Royal said he was going to 'Do what was fair.'"

Online court records show Royal failed to appear for a court hearing in the custody case and a bench warrant was issued on Jan. 16.

Royal was previously known as Demitrius D. Moore. The Milwaukee resident changed his name to Sebastian Royal last year.
