Brandon Goode, 18, and his girlfriend, Alexandria Hollinghurst, 17, reportedly gunned down Windermere Police Officer Robert German before committing suicide minutes later.

Goode and his British teenage girlfriend were stopped by Officer German as they walked down a street in a wealthy suburb of Orlando early Saturday morning.

Officer German, who had been on routine foot patrol, immediately called for back-up after deeming the couple to be suspicious. When officers arrived on the scene, they found the officer fatally shot and Brandon Goode and Alexandria Hollinghurst were nowhere to be found.

The officers had to run for cover when two gunshots sounded about a block away. The teenage couple was found dead from suspected self-inflicted gunshot wounds on the grounds of a multi-million home in the same community where Tiger Woods and his then-wife once lived.

Alexandria Hollinghurst and her family migrated from Great Britain. Her family and friends believe she was murdered by her boyfriend and didn’t commit suicide.

Brandon Goode was recently arrested for marijuana possession, alcohol possession by a minor and for having drug paraphernalia. Records show they were all first-time offenses. He resolved those charges last Thursday when he was accepted into a pre-trial diversion program, undertaking treatment for addiction.
