A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
Two children were killed Wednesday morning in a shooting at a northeast Denver home, which also claimed their mother’s life and left their sister critically injured.
The shooting left two children, Nevaeh and Eric, and their mother, Mayra Perez, dead.
Another child, Isabelle, survived and was rushed to the hospital. That child was listed in critical condition after surgery on Wednesday afternoon.
Police say this appears to have been an isolated shooting and there's no indication a shooter is still on the loose.
There's no information available about a possible motive for the shootings.
Friends and family of the victims gathered Wednesday evening for a vigil in their honor.
Neighbors say the family moved in about six months ago.
