Kaliek Goode-Ford, 30, of Newburgh was charged on Monday with three counts of murder and attempted murder. Police believe Goode-Ford was the lone shooter who killed Jimmy Crisantos, 27, Shatavia Crisantos, 26, and 9-year-old Giovanni Tambino, Shatavia’s son from a previous relationship.

A fourth victim, Jimmy’s 3-year-old son, is in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds, police say.

“Jimmy was an amazing father, husband, son, brother and a friend loved by all. He was always positive and put his family first,” Omaira Pena wrote in a GoFundMe for the surviving members of the Crisanto’s family.

Authorities are calling it a “home invasion” and say they were “targeted” by someone they knew. According to the Town of Newburgh Police Department, Goode-Ford knew the victims, but a motive remains unclear.

On Sept. 1, 2016, Goode-Ford was charged by the City of Newburgh Police Department with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a weapon, felonies, and a misdemeanor count for criminal possession of a controlled substance.

At the time of his arrest, Goode-Ford was in possession of a loaded gun, 100 decks of heroin, 33.40 grams of crack cocaine and 16 additional rounds of ammunition, police say.
