DENVER (KUSA) - Police are investigating a shooting near East 49th Avenue and Pearl Street where three people died, including two children, Wednesday morning.

According to Denver police, four people were shot, including one woman and three young children. 9NEWS has learned that Mayra Nunez, 23, shot her kids and then herself.

A boy and a girl were found dead in the home in the 4900 block of Pearl Street when police arrived, along with Mayra. Tony Nunez, Mayra's older brother, spoke to 9NEWS. He said Eric, who would have been 2 years old soon, as well as his 6-year-old sister Neveah, were the children who were killed at the scene.

One other girl, who Tony identified as 3-year-old Isabelle, was taken to Denver Health Hospital and immediately underwent surgery. She is still in critical condition.

Tony claims she was having an argument Tuesday night when he offered to come get her.

"No, no, we're fine, just a married couple thing," Mayra reportedly told Tony Tuesday. "We have our discussions like everybody."

Tony said his brother-in-law called and said he was staying at a friend's place Tuesday night.

"Maybe I should have [come to get her,] maybe I would have changed things," Tony told 9NEWS.

Tony said the family had recently moved to the area to find a better job. Neveah had just started school.

"I just want everybody to know that she was not a bad person or my brother in law. They were just like any other couple. They had good days and bad days," Tony said.

The medical examiner arrived on scene late Wednesday afternoon.

Mayra Nunez Shoots Her 3 Children, Killing 2, in Denver Murder-Suicide

FEBRUARY 6, 2013 by BRETT WILKINS

A Colorado mother allegedly shot her three children, killing two of them, before turning the gun on herself in the family’s Denver home early Wednesday morning.

9News reports that Mayra Nunez, 23, allegedly shot and killed her son Eric, who would have turned 2 soon, and his 6-year-old sister Neveah at the family’s home on the 4900 block of North Pearl Street. Nunez also allegedly shot her daughter Isabel, age 3, who according to the Denver Post was rushed to Denver Health Medical Center where she underwent surgery and is now listed in critical condition. After shooting her children, Mayra allegedly turned the gun on herself, pulling the trigger and ending her life.

According to ABC 7, police were first notified of the deadly shooting at around 6:55 a.m. on Wednesday.

Tony Nunez, Mayra’s older brother, told 9News that his sister had gotten into an argument with her husband, identified by the Denver Post as Ricky Perez, the night before the deadly shooting. Tony offered to come and get his sister, but she insisted that everything was fine.

“No, no, we’re fine, just a married couple thing,” Mayra reportedly told him. “We have our discussions like everybody.”

“Maybe I should have [come to get her],” Nunez told 9News. “Maybe I would have changed things.”

McArthur Mitchell and Joann Cobb, who live nearby, told the Denver Post that the family was “friendly.”

“They were friendly, we didn’t hear them fighting,” Cobb said. “I’m in such a shock. They were just a happy little family.”

There have been several murder-suicides involving parents shooting their own children in recent weeks.

On Saturday, 45-year-old Isidro Zavala forced his wife, 28-year-old Victoria Flores Zavala, to watch as he strangled and shot the couple’s two sons, ages 2 and 11, before shooting himself dead in their Boynton Beach, Florida home.

On January 21, Las Vegas Metro Police Lieutenant Hans Pieter Walters, 52, shot and killed his 5-year-old son Maximillian and his wife, 46-year-old Kathryn Michelle Walters, before killing himself.

And on January 4, 30-year-old Melanie Reyes of Ocala, Florida shot her 6-month-old son Jonah Mendoza dead before turning the gun on herself. Reyes survived the self-inflicted gunshot wound but died later in the hospital.
