An Ocala man killed himself Wednesday after murdering his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

Gregory John Briseno, 29, shot himself in a red Honda in a wooded area near Oak Drive in Silver Springs Shores, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Briseno earlier that morning shot and killed 26-year-old Alexis Marie Waranka and her boyfriend, 30-year-old Ryan Anthony Young in Waranka’s apartment located at 7417 Midway Terrace in Silver Springs Shores. Briseno was Waranka’s ex-boyfriend.

Detectives located Briseno’s Facebook page, where it appears he made a post around the time of the murders that contained incriminating statements.

I was pushed to a limit I never thought I’d be pushed to. I was shown true evil in the past 6 months. My body, heart and mind has been affected to no repair. I will take the title of the bad guy. Nobody needs to know the true betrayal and trespass done unto me. She will keep her name intact wether it be good or bad. Any other party affected in the moment will only be that of collateral damage. Just know it had to be done. If you are the few who know part of the truth then I know still you won’t understand why but just know that I am sorry and had to finish it all once and for all. To my brothers I am sorry for being weak and not letting go. Be better men than me. My nieces don’t fear my loss for I am now at peace. My family I know I let you down and again don’t expect any of you to understand. But this is how it is. I love all of you but the situation has become irreversibly inevitable. Though the world had been taken and turned upside down… judgement has been passed and just punishment has been dealt.
