KELLOGG, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — UPDATE (Wednesday, 10:45 p.m.) Majorjon Kaylor, 31, is facing four counts of first degree murder and one count of burglary, after allegedly killing his neighbors.

In court documents obtained by KMVT News, Kellogg Police say Kaylor shot all four of the victims in the head Sunday evening.

Records show Kenneth Guardipee, 65, and his daughter, Kenna Guardipee, 41, were shot outside the apartment. Kenna’s children, Devin Smith, 18, and Aiken Smith, 16, were shot inside their home.

All the victims, but Devin were likely shot once, according to police.

Kaylor was arrested at the scene and allegedly told law enforcement he had shot his neighbors. A gun was also recovered from Kaylor’s truck.

In a police interview with Kaylor, records state, “Kaylor stated he was suspicious and concerned for his children as one of the victims (Devin Smith) had been acting suspicious, watching his kids, and conducted acts of nudity in front of his children.” The officer wrote, “Kaylor referred to Devin Smith as a pedophile.”

Kaylor then went to tell police he confronted Devin’s family and according to Kaylor, they didn’t take his concerns seriously. He said he “snapped”, “lost it”, and “did something about it.”

Kaylor is being held without bail and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on July 3.
