A naked man brutally murdered a mum and a baby inside an apartment during a "hammer" killing spree which saw one other person declared dead.

Dan Spidle, 35, killed the woman and a one-year-old boy in an apartment complex last week in Coral Springs, Florida.

The infant was rushed to Broward Health Medical Center where he was sadly pronounced dead, police said.

Authorities said that Spidle fled the scene in a 2019 silver Kia and got into a hit-and-run crash at an intersection, reports Local10.

Shortly after he was involved in a multi-vehicle crash and shot dead the driver of a white pickup truck which was impacted in the crash. Two others were also injured during the incident.

Chaos soon descended outside of a Walmart in Coconut Creek after Spidle crashed a vehicle for a third time that day.

It was reported that he jumped out of the stolen truck during the second incident and then tried to grab a woman's necklace.

Cops were left shocked after they arrived at the scene to find him walking around on the street while nude.

It remains unclear at this time how the mother and baby were killed during the horror event on Friday, May 20. But it was alleged during a mass at St Andrew’s Catholic Church that they were battered with a hammer.

On Sunday ( May 22) Reverend Pedro Freitez identified the mother as Elizabeth Carmona and said that she was watching her nephew Mateo Morales at the time of the bloodied attack.

"A neighbour came in without asking, kills and murders a woman and a child with a hammer," Freitez told WSNV.

Neighbour Diane Hirschfield revealed that Spidle lived in the same apartment complex as the victims and said: "I feel very bad for him cause his life is over.

"But I feel very bad for the couple that would lose a child, a baby."

Police confirmed that he was arrested on Saturday ( May 21) and has since been charged with murder, fleeing the scenes of multiple accidents and burglary.

Spidle has been booked into Broward County Jail.
