Christopher Bryan Speight shot his sister, her husband, and her son and daughter at their home, as well as four other people. He then escaped into a forest and shot at a police helicopter searching for him, but eventually surrendered himself to authorities. On February 15, 2013, Speight was sentenced to life imprisonment.The incident began on January 19, when police were called to a road outside Appomattox on a report of a man who required medical attention. When police arrived, they were fired on by the suspect, Christopher Bryan Speight, who also fired on a police helicopter, forcing it to make an emergency landing. Shortly afterwards, the suspect fled to a wooded area, where a force of more than a hundred police officers surrounded him. No officers were injured in the attacks, though eight civilians were killed: three were killed on January 17 in a house co-owned by the gunman (his sister and the house's co-owner, Lauralee Sipe, and her husband, Dwayne Sipe, both 38, and their four-year-old son, Joshua), and two days later, four others died outside the house, with the last victim dying on the road.[1] Police said that the victims were both men and women, and all were previously acquainted with the suspect. No motive was known, and Speight was believed to have acted alone.[2] He surrendered on January 20.  Speight told them that he had been ordered by an Egyptian goddess named Jennifer to shoot his family, because they were possessed by demons, while the others were killed, so they could not help his first victims, since Jennifer demanded that their bodies had to rot.[5]
