Report: C.J. Spiller's Step-Grandfather Kills Three In Murder-Suicide

Hubert Allen, Jr. killed two people, and injured two more before killing himself during a shooting spree Saturday in Lake Butler, Fla.

Allen walked into a trucking company that he used to work for and shot a man. Allen then found the owner and killed him. A farmhand was also killed, and at some point, another person was seriously injured.


After, Allen went back to his home and killed himself.

The two surviving victims are in critical condition at a hospital in Gainesville.


According to officials, Allen is the step-grandfather of Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller. Spiller was injured during today's preseason game against the Redskins, which isn't nearly as important, but it's clearly been a terrible day for Spiller.
