Police have identified a mother and father who died Sunday in a murder-suicide on Pueblo's Acero Avenue. Officers found the couple, after neighbors called in with concerns because they heard the children crying inside the home.
Police say 27 year old Gary Grinstead II shot and killed his wife, 20 year old Amanda Petek Grinstead, before taking his own life. Amanda
was 5-months pregnant, due in September.
Police say Gary had called 911 after he had shot Amanda, just before he turned the gun on himself. But, they were too late.
Two young children were locked in a room inside the home at the time of the shooting. They are now in custody of their paternal grandparents.
Family members told police the couple was having money problems. And police say they had one incidence of domestic violence with the Grinstead's last year.
Neighbors say the two were very quiet and kept to themselves, and few really knew them.
