Denver woman who shot children, self used two guns


Isabel Perez, who was shot by her mother, recovers at Denver Health Medical Center on Feb. 22, 2013. (RJ Sangosti, The Denver Post)

A northeast Denver woman who police said shot her three children before killing herself used two guns, court records show.

Mayra Perez, 23, used a shotgun and a handgun in the Feb. 6 shootings, Denver police homicide detectives wrote in an application to search the family's home in the 4900 block of North Pearl Street.

Perez, her older daughter, Nevaeh Morales, 4, and her son, Erick Perez, 1, died of gunshot wounds. Her other daughter, 2-year-old Isabel Perez, continues to recover from a gunshot to the head. She was transferred Monday from Denver Health Medical Center to Children's Hospital Colorado.

Detectives recovered shotgun shells, spent casings and spent bullets inside the home, according to an inventory.

6. Did she have a prior felony conviction?

The article doesn't mention it. The ongoing lie that most gun deaths are carried out by
criminals, those with prior felony convictions, is exposed everyday in the newspaper.

This is a great opportunity for you to tell us how great shotguns are for protecting the home.
