Authorities tell 11 News a second victim in an Easter day double shooting in Colorado Springs has died. Paula Ordaz, 36, died Monday. Fidencio Ordaz Gonzalez, 38, died at the scene of the shooting.

Police are calling the shooting a possible murder-suicide, but won't say who was the shooter.

"Shots fired," said Sgt. Steve Noblitt of the Colorado Springs Police Department. That's what police say brought them out to the 3200 block of Greenwood Circle, near Airport Road and S. Circle Drive.

The Bomb Squad, SWAT and K9 Unit were all dispatched to surround the home where gun fire was coming from.

There was a third person inside the home, an adult woman, she's the one who called 911 when she heard gun shots coming from inside the home. She told police she thought her father owned a gun.

Police are still investigating, but are not looking for anyone else. "We believe this to be contained in this home," said Sgt. Noblitt.

    Prayers are always good, Nick. God does not do these things, people do with their own free will. And I will be praying for those kids.

    Praying will not help this family, unfortunately the damage is done. What was the cause? Was it due to economic stress? Not all crimes are reported by news or released on the Police Blotter. I am confident crime is on a sharp increase here in Colo. Spgs. Does anyone have ideas or thoughts on how to possibly curtail the increase in crime?

    Please respect this family by not making judgmental comments. This is an extremely difficult time for all the family. Prayers, kindness and support is what everyone needs. Please remember that there are children involved.

    I get so frustrated with the inaccuracy of the reports on KKTV. My heart breaks for the young mid-teenaged girl (not an adult woman) who called 9-1-1 after she heard the shots fired. Poor, poor babies. Losing both of their parents. This is such a sad tragedy.

    ON that raw video what gives you the right not only to film the police and Fire Department working on Paula but to film the family in a time of a tragedy, do you realize how insensitive that is on your part to show and post that? What if that was your family? Really there was more then needed to be seen and im baffled that you would but that up on your website. The family needs not to be mocked and shown on the web but comforted and be there for the kids all of them. Show some common respect please remove the video those kids are all minors except for one, and i know when i talked to them this was the last thing they needed to hear was that there being posted on the internet like the next springs you tube spree, feel free to contact me at the email provided if you have any questions and take it down for the family. Thank you Chris

    My son has been friends with the teenage boy for many years. Teens who lose their parents need lots of love and support. They will be in our prayers.

    So because this family was hispanic you (alex) automatically assume this was gang related? I hate ignorant people like you that stereotype. Get ur facts straight and I suggest that out of respect for the family you keep your dumb comments to yourself. What they need is prayer and support, not people to judge them by their race.
