JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- JSO arrested Karla Gene Davis, 36, on suspicion of the murder of Ian Klinedinst, 22.
Klinedinst was gunned down in front of his two youngest children, ages 2 and 7-months, at 9:18 p.m. on Sunday in the 6100 block of North Earline Circle.
Police said Davis drove up to Klinedinst's car and shot him in the face. Klinedinst died at the scene. Two of Klinedinst's young children were in the car with him.
Police said Davis and Klinedinst were strangers.
After the shooting, police reported that Davis went to her residence to pack up some belongings and fled to a local hotel where she was arrested on Thursday.
Davis told police she acted in self-defense, but investigators said evidence collected at the scene along with additional witness interviews contradict her version of events.
