crime scene with police

DENVER — Until Wednesday morning Mila Perez was the mother of three beautiful children.

Police say she she shot her three children and then herself. Two of her three children died. Her 3-year-old, Isabela, was in critical condition Wednesday night.

Nobody knows why she did it, especially not her brother.

“I don’t know what drove my sister to do this but we’ll just leave it in God’s hands,” said Antonio Nunez.

Early Wednesday morning police surrounded the Globeville home where the Perez family once lived.

One officer called the scene inside one of the most horrific he had ever seen.

Inside Mila Perez was dead along with her two children Eric and Nevaeh.

Her family says she killed both of them and just before she took her own life, she turned the gun on 3-year-old Isabela firing a bullet at her head.

“There is quite a bit of damage to her and so we’ll just put it in god’s hands and hopefully will be okay,” said Nunez.

The family says the next 72-hours are critical for Isabela. They say they are in the process of setting up a fund and details about that will be available Thursday.
