Three teen girls and their mother shot by mother's boyfriend in Tennessee

An argument took place in an apartment in Nashville, Tennessee, between 39-year-old Earnest Woodley and his girlfriend, Nicole Luke.  

Woodley, a convicted felon for second-degree murder, assault, and drug charges, then pulled out a gun and started shooting, injuring Nicole and her twin 14-year old daughters.  Woodley then went outside and shot and injured Luke's 15-year old daughter, who was sitting in a vehicle.  Woodley then fled.  Other children in the apartment were, luckily, unharmed.

From an article:
Police said "Woodley and Nicole Luke were reportedly moving to Memphis when they stopped by Woodley's cousin's apartment...to say goodbye." They parked two vehicles outside, a U-Haul full of their belongings and a Chevrolet Traverse.
Woodley, Luke and twins Deona and Keona Luke went inside while Luke's 15-year-old daughter, Kierra Smith, stayed inside the SUV.
Woodley's cousin told police that the couple argued inside the apartment and Woodley shot Luke and the twins before going outside and firing into the SUV, wounding Smith, the news release said.
Three other children inside the apartment, including the couple's 3-year-old daughter, were not harmed.
Police said Woodley ran into the woods after the shooting, wearing blue shorts and a gray t-shirt.
The police department's domestic violence division said it has no prior history on the family.
The news release said Woodley's parole expired in 2010. In addition to his murder conviction, he has a long arrest record in Nashville and felony convictions in Shelby County for aggravated assault and cocaine possession, police said,
