Saying Wednesday morning's massacre at a Callahan home "doesn't make sense," Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper announced the arrest of William Conway Broyles in the deaths of his wife and two grown children.

Leeper said the 57-year-old suspect called 911 about 7:15 a.m. to notify deputies of what had just occurred at his Deer Run Road home in the Spring Lake Estates community.

"The suspect was lying down in the driveway unarmed, waiting on them," the sheriff said. "... Later on, he told us that he shot each victim multiple times just to make sure they didn't suffer."
