A Baltimore man shot and killed his girlfriend and ex-wife in two jurisdictions before taking his own life on Saturday, Dec. 11.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said officers responded to an alarm call shortly after 1:30 p.m. in Federal Hill, and found a rear door kicked in. Inside the residence, they found a 41-year-old woman dead from a gunshot wound.

Police received information about a Facebook Live video in which a man said he shot his girlfriend and was on his way to Howard County, Maryland to kill his ex-wife and take his own life.

"Howard County Police were notified by Baltimore Police that there was a post on social media that indicated the suspect's intention to come to Howard County," said Sherry Llewellyn, a spokeswoman for Howard County Police.

By the time officers arrived at an apartment in the 7300 block of Eden Brook Drive in Columbia just after 2 p.m., the suspect had killed his ex-wife and himself, Llewellyn said.

In a Facebook Live video, the man calmly explained what drove him to shoot his ex-girlfriend earlier.

"Anyway, I just did something crazy, man. I just shot my ex-girlfriend in the head yo," he said. "It felt like a dream. I never thought I would be that guy. I can't go to prison, so the person that really started my depression and all of this is my ex-wife. So, she next. And then I'm going to do myself too."

His confession was a cautionary tale about the risks involved when women play with a man's emotions.

"I just wanted to say this to people," he continued, "don't play with people's emotions. Don't lie on these men. Oh, here's my ex-wife right here."

Just then, his ex-wife opened the back door and poked her head out before slamming the door shut.

"Oh nah nah, today is the day," he said as the video ends.

Orange County Jail

Ex-NFL Player Zackary "Zac" Stacy was arrested at the Orlando International Airport after he exited a flight from Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday.

Stacy is accused of savagely beating his ex-girlfriend Kristin Evans, the mother of his 5-month-old son.

The beating was captured on hidden cameras in Evans' studio apartment in Oakland, Florida last Saturday.

Stacy fled the state after the attack, but he was persuaded by law enforcement to return to Florida to face the music.

Orlando Police took him into custody and he was booked into the Orange County Jail late Thursday, according to OPD spokesperson Heidi Rodriguez.

Stacy appears to have a smirk on his face in the mugshot released by the Orange County Jail.

In a series of Twitter posts this week, Evans complained that she was ignored by Oakland police officers who waited 4 days to issue a restraining order against the former NY Jets running back.

However, the OPD claims officers responded "within minutes" to Evans' emergency call Saturday around 2:30 p.m. and determined "a domestic violence battery had taken place."

Oakland police Detective Shawn Dozier claimed Stacy, "had fled the scene," by the time officers arrived.

Evans took to Twitter to thank her supporters last night. She tweeted, "Personally I feel the state should have several more charges, but thank you to everyone who made this possible!!! We are halfway there."

A manhunt is underway for a former NFL player who brutally attacked his ex-girlfriend in a viral video.

Zac Stacy is wanted on felony charges of assaulting Kristin Evans, the mother of his 5-month-old son.

According to docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Stacy is facing felony aggravated battery and criminal mischief charges.

Stacy faces up to 15 years behind bars if convicted on the aggravated battery charge and 5 years in prison on the criminal mischief charge.

The former running back is currently still at large. Evans believes his friends are hiding him in the Nashville area.

In a video on Thursday, Evans said:

"I don't know why his friends are hiding him. If you see him -- he drives a white Kia Optima, a 2020 I believe or a 2021. Please, again, if you see him or you know of any location that he might be, please turn him in or call your local authorities."

Evans said police in Oakland, Florida, where she lives, ignored her pleas to arrest Stacy. Their slow response enabled him to flee the state of Florida.

However, police officials tell TMZ officers responded to the domestic violence call "within two minutes" of Stacy's attack last Saturday.

Meanwhile, TMZ reports Stacy has been dropped from his role as a youth football ambassador for the Music City Bowl this year.

Stacy, 30, is a former running back for the NY Jets and St. Louis Rams.

Twitter is outraged over the Zac Stacy viral video -- but not for the reasons you think.

Home surveillance video shows the ex-NFL player punching and throwing his ex-girlfriend, Kristin Evans, to the floor. He is also seen dragging her off a sofa and throwing her into a flat screen TV.

The video is shocking and disturbing to watch. But many on Twitter say people should stop sharing the video.

Ex-NFL player Cam Worrell tweeted "There is no need to post the video of Zac Stacy."

Others on Twitter agree that the video shouldn't be shared because it's too "traumatic" and "triggering".

One user tweeted: "I hate that I see that Zac Stacy guy video circulating. It’s very traumatic for me and triggering."

Another user wrote: "Don't retweet that Zac Stacy video on the timeline, at least not without a trigger warning. Be mindful of domestic violence survivors that may follow you."

And a third person tweeted: "I will NOT be sharing the #ZacStacy video but if you do please please put a trigger warning (TW)."

But other Twitter users say sharing the video is important to raise awareness for domestic violence victims who often suffer in silence.

Evans said she was ignored by her local police department in Florida after she tried to take out a restraining order on Stacy.

"The Oakland PD officers that came to my house didn't seem to think this was a bad enough incident to make an immediate arrest or to file for an immediate warrant. It took four days of me calling people and an Orange County officer speaking on my behalf."

She added:

"The Florida justice system has been failing me. I have filed police reports previously and the State Attorney hasn't picked them up. Other women fall victim to this everyday. Please call attention to the Florida State Attorney."

Home surveillance video shows ex-NFL player Zac Stacy punching and throwing his ex-girlfriend into a flat screen TV.

Kristin Evans is heard begging Stacy to stop as he picks her up and throws her around the room like a rag doll.

At 220 pounds the former NY Jets running back easily outweighs the mother of his 5-month-old son.

According to reports, Stacy flew into a blind rage while visiting his infant son at Evans's Florida apartment around 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Stacy dragged Evans from a sofa and punched her several times before throwing her into a flat screen TV which landed on top of her.

The 30-year-old ex-NFL player then told his son, "I love you," before storming out of the apartment.

Evans and Stacy are pictured during happier times when they first met at Vanderbilt University.

Evans has filed a restraining order against Stacy, who is on the run from police. She believes he is in the Nashville area.

Evans says Stacy had time to flee because officers in Oakland, where she lives, didn't take her complaints seriously.

"The Oakland PD officers that came to my house didn't seem to think this was a bad enough incident to make an immediate arrest or to file for an immediate warrant," she wrote on social media. "It took four days of me calling people and an Orange County officer speaking on my behalf."

She added:

"The Florida justice system has been failing me. I have filed police reports previously and the State Attorney hasn't picked them up. Other women fall victim to this everyday. Please call attention to the Florida State Attorney."

She said the police viewed the same video you're seeing -- and they still took four days to issue an arrest warrant.

"No one should have to go through what I went through and then to have to fight for the law to protect them. It took 4 days to issue a warrant WITH VIDEO."
