— Stephanie Caceres's boyfriend and father of the twins, Jevaughn Suckoo was shot and killed in his home at Renaissance Apartments on July 11.

Friends and family confirm that Caceres gave birth just days after his death but suffered complications from a C-section while birthing the twins. Friends told WPTV she had gotten an infection. She collapsed and died hours later in the ICU at Palms West Hospital.

The family has created a new GoFundMe page for the children.

Detectives are investigating a homicide that occurred Tuesday night inside a gated apartment complex in West Palm Beach.

At about 7:35 p.m., police received 911 calls of a shooting at the Renaissance Apartments located in the 4100 block of Bear Lakes Ct. off of Military Trail.

"Especially last night I couldn't sleep because I didn't know where the gunshots were going to come from, my window, through my window," said neighbor Zania Ervilus, who lives downstairs.

The victim was later identified as 26-year-old Jevaughn Suckoo.

Jevaughn's father told NewsChannel 5 that he was the father of a girl who turns two in September and his girlfriend is expecting twins.

"We have never been through anything like this," said Dwight Suckoo, Jevaughn's father. "I try to keep my family away from things like this but unfortunately my son got caught up in it."

Suckoo had this to say to whoever pulled the trigger and took his son's life, "I want the killer to know, make no mistake, we're going to find you," said Suckoo.
