WFTV in Orlando, Florida, obtained a frightening 911 call Tuesday that a father made after he killed his daughter and six grandchildren in Bell last week.

The eerie phone call begins with Don Spirit telling the 911 dispatcher, "I just shot my daughter and shot all my grandkids, and I'm gonna be sitting on my step, and when you get here, I'm gonna shoot myself." Deputies identified the shooter as 51-year-old Spirit and his daughter as 28-year-old Sarah Spirit.  Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz released the names of the victims. In addition to Sarah Spirit, they were: Kaleb Kuhlmann, 11; Kylie Kuhlmann, 9; Johnathon Kuhlmann, 8; Destiny Stewart, 5; Brandon Stewart, 4; and Alanna Stewart, who was born in June.

When deputies arrived at the home, which sits on a long dirt road on 29th Street, they said all seven victims were dead, and deputies confronted Spirit before he killed himself in front of the officers.

Investigators said the victims were found throughout the remote property.
