NEW YORK CITY — A man massacred his family, including his 7-year-old daughter, walking from room to room shooting each of them in the head in a Queens home early Saturday morning before turning the gun on himself, police sources said.

Jonathon Walker, 34, also tried to kill his 12-year-old daughter, shooting her in the head as well, but the girl, despite the bullet exiting her eye, managed to call 911,  sources said.

According to police, Walker shot his 31-year-old girlfriend, her 62-year-old mother and his younger daughter, killing them, at the home in Springfield Gardens, on 148th Avenue, near 231st Street.

The 12-year-old daughter was rushed to Long Island Jewish Hospital where she was listed in critical condition.

Walker, who was described as 6-foot-6 and weighing 260 pounds, was later found in a 2013 silver GMC Acadia on the Lefferts Boulevard extension near JFK Airport, sources said.
