FORT WORTH (CBS 11 NEWS) - A man charged with murdering three people and his unborn child wants to apologize for “whatever happened to them.” But he won’t say what DID happen to them.

Amos Wells III is charged with four counts of capital murder, and left partway through an interview with CBS-11’s Bud Gillett. Before he suddenly left, Wells spoke in a very passive voice and didn’t own up to any specifics connected to yesterday’s horrible murders in southeast Fort Worth.

“Some crazy stuff,” he said. “It was a crazy day.”

Amos Wells admitted walking into the Forest Hill Police Department about an hour after Monday’s shootings in which 10-year-old Eddie McCuin, his older sister, Chanice Reed, Reed’s unborn child—with Wells thought to be the father—and their mother, Annette Reed, were all killed.

But during the interview, he talked like he didn’t know why he was there. On turning himself in to the Forest Hill police. “I walked into the police station and started talking to police and then I talked to the detective and I was charged with capital murder.”

He apologized for anyone who loved the people that were “hurt,” his word. But wouldn’t say how they got hurt.

“I just, I just really want to apologize to whoever loved or had any kind of feelings for the people that was hurt. There’s no excuse that anyone can give that can justify what happened to them, you know? It’s no excuse, there’s nothing no one can say to make them feel better.”

Gillett asked, ” Did you shoot and kill Chanice?” Wells replied, “I said I just want to apologize to them. It’s not no…I don’t want to play no detective or interrogation.”

Chanice’s unborn child could not be saved, either. Fort Worth Police say Wells was the father.

Gillett queried him further. “I understand Chanice was pregnant with your child. Were you two seeing each other?”

Wells’ response, “That’s all I want to talk about, man,” and he took off his microphone and walked off. He is being held on a $2 million bond.

Meahwhile, at the Reeds’ home, a steady stream of friends tried to comfort the family. Doris Pinegar remembered Annette Reed’s kindness when Doris’ niece died after a long illness just a month after Doris’ sister died.

Speaking of Annette, she said,”She came to our rescue, she helped dress her in the casket…I can’t believe something would happen to a nice lady like that.”
