Domestic Violence Tragedy: Gunman, 35, Kills Girlfriend, 29, Before Taking Own Life

DEBARYLIFE – In a murder-suicide that his mother claimed she saw on Monday, a Brooklyn man shot his girlfriend before killing himself following a fight over money and their children.

Teddy Knight, 35, and Tanezia Blackwood, 29, had a history of conflict that culminated in death late in the morning when Knight produced a revolver inside the couple’s Midwood apartment, as his mother Norma Knight told The Post over the phone.

The couple’s apartment on Avenue I and Ocean Avenue is shared by Norma, 65, who stated, “He went somewhere in the cupboard and I saw he took out a gun and he started shooting her.” “After firing two shots at her, she fell to the ground, and he stomped on her face.”

Then, according to her stunned mother, he shot himself in broad daylight.

Near a kitchen, the two deceased victims with gunshot wounds to the head were discovered by responding police officers at 10:10 a.m., according to the authorities.

Norma claimed that the couple’s last fight started overnight and kept her up at night.

Then, she continued, “This morning when I woke up, I heard them making noise.” Upon exiting the bedroom, I noticed that she was shoving items into a laundry bag.

“Then they begin to fight and swear, ending up in the bathroom.”

She claimed that until her son left and came back carrying the gun, they continued fighting.

Before their horrific demise, Norma Knight told The Post that the couple had been battling personal issues for a while.

“They had a long-term issue with the kids, the rent, the money, and everything else,” she remarked. “It finally boiled over.”
