|A Brooklyn dad allegedly went on a killing spree — fatally shooting his 14-month-old daughter and two other men
in the head — before turning the gun on himself, police sources said Wednesday.
Terrance Briggs, 27, who sources said was a Bloods gang member, carried out the quadruple murder-suicide inside a fourth-
floor apartment at Riverdale Osborne Towers in Brownsville.
Patricia Green, 53, the grandmother of the little girl Laylay, made the gruesome discovery when she returned home at 5 a.m.
Briggs — Green’s son and Laylay’s father — allegedly shot his stepdad Loyod Drain Jr., 57, and 16-year-old stepbrother
Loyed Drain III, before killing his daughter and himself, sources said.
“He has a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the source said.
All four were shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Loyod Drain was shot to death on the toilet, while his son was discovered in bed near an Xbox, according to sources.
Briggs and Laylay, who was born Christmas Day 2016, were in the same room. The little girl was wearing a diaper and
found in the bed, while Briggs’ body was discovered between the bed and the wall.
Loyod Drain and his son Loyed Drain III.
The apartment looked like it was ransacked, sources said.
“She was very upset and crying. It’s a horrible scene,” a source said about Green, who lives in the apartment. “What would
make anyone want to kill a 1-year-old?”
Shell casings were recovered at the scene and a .40-caliber gun was found in a bedroom where there were no bodies, police
and sources said.
Sources said Green allegedly moved the gun to the room before police arrived.
No suicide note was found.
Sources said police have been called the home multiple times for domestic incidents in the past. Twelve incidents involved
Briggs, including in August 2005, when he threatened his stepfather with a loaded gun.
Briggs has 13 arrests for charges like petit larceny, assault and menacing related to the incident with his stepfather.
The mother of the baby lives elsewhere, sources said.
A neighbor who didn’t want to give his name said Loyod Drain was known as “Big Daddy.”
“He was a retired transit worker, he was in the military and he was one of the sweetest guys you can ever come into contact
with,” the neighbor said through tears. “He would help anybody. He would give the shirt off his back man.”
Neighbor Jose Valdez said Briggs, the father of the baby, had a reputation of being “violent.”
“Killing the whole family like this…there has to be something wrong,” Valdez, 53, said.
Valdez said the slain teen, who was friends with his sons, was a good student and played basketball at PS 41 across the
street from the housing complex.
Another neighbor Vanessa Swain was heartbroken over the news.
“It breaks my heart to see them gone and to see his kids,” said Swain, 50. “My heart is so numb right now.”
Green and Loyod Drain had the “perfect marriage,” according to Swain.
“I can tell you that Patricia loved her family,” Swain said.
The investigation is ongoing.
