The world is turning into a place we hardly recognize.
It pains our heart to report 23-year-old Mayra Perez shot her three children before killing herself this morning in Denver.
The only survivor is 3-year-old Isabelle, who is currently undergoing surgery at Denver Health Hospital.
Isabelle's siblings, 6-year-old Neveah and 1-year-old Eric, were both killed at the scene.
We aren't sure what could compel a mother to murder her own kids, but this is an absolutely crushing tragedy.
Jose Rojas, a local church pastor is tired of all the violence.
"Basically, we pray for the community. This is the horror of the whole country. There are all these shootings. I think it's too much, too much to see innocent people being killed."
Jose is 100% correct.
There are too many shootings. Too many innocents are dying violent deaths.
Hopefully these deadly weapons will soon be stripped from the hands of anyone unstable enough to commit murder.
Our hearts go out to all the victims, may the deceased little ones rest in peace.
