Here are the 4 children killed in the Orlando hostage incident

Gary Wayne Lindsey Jr

Orlando Police Chief John Mina says that four children and a suspect are dead after a 20-hour hostage situation.

The 35-year-old killed all four children - Iraya, 12; Lillia, 10; Aidan, 6; and Dove, 1 - before taking his own life during the standoff.

The standoff started around 11:45 p.m. Sunday night when an officer with the Orlando Police Department was shot while responding to a domestic violence call at the Westbrook Apartment complex near Universal.

Lindsey was found dead in a closet when officers entered the apartment about 9 p.m., more than 21 hours after the standoff started, Mina said at a news conference just before midnight Monday.

"Her boyfriend was the father of two of the children and selfishly took the lives of these precious innocent angels and then took his own life", wrote Walter Benenati, who is raising money to cover funeral costs.

Benenati tells our NBC affiliate WESH that 6-year-old Aiden loved dinosaurs, 10-year-old Lillia loved Disney and 12-year-old Iraya loved video games and was an overachiever in school. Authorities say two of the children are believed to be Lindsey's, while the other two are believed to be those of the girlfriend.

Police said Lindsey's girlfriend made the initial call after she had left the apartment.

"These handsome babies never hurt anyone", wrote Benenati, who said money would go toward funeral expenses and helping Ciara get on her feet. The page can be found here.

She said officers then went door-to-door evacuating residents from the scene of the standoff.

"His kids were lovely, sweet children - well-mannered, as well", Gonzalez said.

Neighbours in the Florida apartment complex described Lindsey as both nice and unusual. Lindsey was the father of Aidan and Dove, he said.

As a teen, Lindsey had been enrolled in ninth grade at Pine Ridge High School in Deltona, but he withdrew to attend adult education, Nancy Wait, Volusia Schools spokeswoman, said. Authorities continued to try to talk to the suspect, while SWAT team members studied the apartment layout. Lopez said, shaking his head to indicate that they got no response. The Medical Examiner's office declined to comment.

His girlfriend had called police after he battered her during an argument.

Lindsey was on felony probation after pleading no contest to charges of arson of a dwelling, willful fleeing or eluding law enforcement and domestic battery for 2008 incident in nearby Volusia County involving another woman, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

As Rondinelli was leaving with her dogs, she saw Lindsey, 25 at the time, carrying two gasoline cans into the house, according to the report. The chief said they did everything they could to make sure this ended peacefully with no children or Lindsey getting hurt.

Gary Lindsey is seen in this May 18, 2018, mugshot after an arrest for a probation violation.

"He looked like a nice guy", Almeida said.
