ORLANDO, Fla. - Recently released 911 calls show multiple neighbors heard gunshots during a murder-suicide at an Audubon Park home Thursday morning.

"I just heard gunshots, four shots. I looked over the fence, my neighbor shot himself, he has a fiance in there. I hear the dogs barking but there was four shots. I looked over the fence, he's laying flat on the ground. There's blood," a woman who lives next door to the Finch Street home said.

Orlando Police Department officials said they found Jonathan Restey, 47, and a 49-year-old woman in the back porch area.

According to the newly released calls, neighbors told investigators the couple was engaged.

Authorities identified Restey as the aggressor in the incident, adding that they are not looking for any additional suspects.

The next-door neighbor who called 911 said she was unsure if the gun was still on the ground.

"No I can't, I don't want to look anymore," the woman said.

Another man who lives in the neighborhood also called 911.

"About three minutes ago, I heard what sounded like three gunshots. I looked outside, I didn't see anything or anybody but it sounded like gunshots, three of them," the man said.

Restey, has a criminal history dating back to 2008, according to court records. His prior charges include violation of domestic injunction and aggravated battery on a pregnant person.

Close friends said the 49-year-old woman was a mother and leaves behind a young daughter. Friends said the 10-year-old girl was not home when the shooting happened.

A funeral for the victim is planned for Tuesday. Her family has asked for privacy.
