As we've previously reported, Sarah told the 911 operator that her stepbrother was firing at her parents. The dispatcher heard shots and screaming in the background. Then, shortly thereafter, Sarah said she couldn't hear her parents anymore.Sarah hid in a closet until deputies arrived. They gained entry through an unlocked rear door and soon discovered three bodies. Two people were dead: Robert, who'd taken his own life, and Maggie, struck by multiple gunshots. Bruce, too, was hit more than once, but survived. At last report, he remained hospitalized, but is expected to recovery.
The sheriff's office reveals that Sarah was also targeted by Robert, who used a revolver he owned.
Investigators believe an argument between Robert and his parents took place on the main level of the home. During it, Robert went to his room to retrieve the gun, then opened fire on Maggie and Bruce. He also fired several shots into Sarah's room before killing himself.
For his part, Robert, 25, was an Army veteran. CBS4 quotes his grandfather as saying he served for seven years in Korea and Iraq, spending at least part of that time with Special Forces. Records list him as a combat engineer who also went through Fort Carson.
Robert's grandfather thinks military training played a role in what happened, as is pointed out in the CBS4 report here. Below that is our previous coverage.
Our condolences to Sarah and other friends, family and loved ones shaken by this terrible incident.
