How Plymouth shooter’s 6-minute rampage unfolded as he targeted house before ‘shooting at random’ in chilling spree
A CHILLING map shows how a killer gunned down a woman at a home before blasting victims at random in a gruesome six-minute rampage.
Gunshots erupted at 6.11pm after Jake Davison, 22, stormed the home in Biddick Drive, Plymouth.
He blasted the 51-year-old woman – believed to be his mum – inside the house with what neighbours described as a pump action shotgun.
Davison then emerged from the home and began peppering bystanders with bullets as horrified neighbours scrambled for cover.
The hulking crane driver was seen picking off people at random – including a three-year-old girl and a male relative, 43, she was with.
While still on the quiet cul-de-sac, he aimed the weapon at a man and woman – leaving them with significant injuries.
Davison left Biddick Drive minutes later and continued the spree in a nearby park where he shot and killed a 59-year-old man.
As a handful of victims lay in his wake, the monster then gunned down a woman, 66, in Henderson Place who was later declared dead in hospital.
Davison then turned the gun on himself as armed cops raced to the scene – bringing the six minute rampage to a bloody end.
The chilling timeline was revealed today in a press conference by Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer.

The officer said Davison killed himself before police had a chance to engage with him.
He also confirmed Davison, whose social media accounts paint the picture of a gun-obsessed loner, had a firearms licence dating back to 2020.
Mr Sawyer said: "We believe we have an incident that is domestically related, that has spilled into the street and seen several people in Plymouth losing their lives in an extraordinarily tragic circumstances."
Yesterday's horror was the first "active shooter" rampage seen in the UK for 11 years since cabbie Derrick Bird murdered 12 people in Cumbria in June 2010.
Devon and Cornwall Police have confirmed they are not treating the mass shooting as terror-related.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said today: "It's a tragedy what's happened there. We can rule out terrorism from that event.
"It goes to underline the importance of issues such as gun control but also what's happening in people's homes up and down the country.
"It's really important our police are properly equipped and supported to deal with it."
