KREX News Room
DENVER, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a 23-year-old mother shot and killed two of her young children and critically wounded another before taking her own life in a Denver home.
Police identified the mother as Mayra Perez. The medical examiner's office says her 4-year-old daughter Navaeh died of multiple gunshot wounds and her 21-month-old son Eric died of a single gunshot wound.
Dr. Claudia Kunrath of Denver Health said Thursday that the surviving child, 2-year-old Isabel Perez, was hospitalized in critical condition in a deep coma.
Relatives have said the woman quarreled Tuesday night with her husband, who left their home to cool off and found the bodies when he returned early Wednesday.
The bodies were found in a home in an industrial area near the National Western Stock Show complex.
