Fadel Jabado, 55, went on a shooting spree in Miami-Dade, Florida because his wife wanted a divorce. In his defense, Jabado, and ice cream truck driver, said he killed his wife and son because he was afraid of losing his house. Jabado also shot Larry Harshman, a real estate lawyer who was trying to help sell the family estate.
After finding Jabado’s wife and son murdered in their home, police used a GPS tracker to locate him. Jabado shot at them when they arrived. Law enforcement officers spent several hours negotiating with Jabado before he opened his vehicle door and pointed his firearm at police.
Four officers discharged their weapons, shooting Jabado several times. He was then taken to a local hospital, where he recuperated.
Jabado pleaded guilty to his crimes and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
“I would like for you to consider my history as a US citizen, and the sacrifices I made for my family who have in the future as a Muslim requires in our lifetime to go to Mecca Pilgrimage,” Jabado begged.
Judge Stephen Millan told him, “You’re not getting out, it’s life.”
