Deputies identified Michelit Polynice as the man who shot and killed his ex-wife, Carlene Pierre, and another woman at the Quality Suites. Polynice then shot Jean Guerline, a housekeeper, at the nearby Westgate Lakes Resort.

Polynice then eluded police, driving back into traffic, before turning the gun on himself and the vehicle hit a tree and burst into flames.

The deputy observed the individual with what appeared to be a handgun…he saw a muzzle flash,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings told the Orlando Sentinel.

Deputies said Pierre and the unidentified woman, both 28 years old, were found shot in the chest and head behind the counter of the hotel. The two were transported to Dr. Phillips Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

The suspect was also believed to have worked at the Westgate Lakes Resort at one time. The woman shot there was very good friends with one of the other victims, Demings said.

“It was a relationship that went bad,” Demings said.
