Police say a man who killed his ex-girlfriend and two of her relatives before fatally shooting himself had been accused of kidnapping the woman and released from jail just hours before the attack.

The Weld County Sheriff's Department says 31-year-old Daniel Sanchez was released from the Boulder County Jail at 10 p.m. Monday.

At about 4 a.m. Tuesday, a 911 dispatcher received a desperate call from a woman who could be heard saying, "no, no, no" before the sound of a gunshot.

Authorities say Sanchez then took phone and told the emergency operator he shot three people. The dispatcher then heard another gunshot.

Killed were Sanchez's ex-girlfriend, 25-year-old Beatriz Cintora-Silva; her sister, 22-year-old Maria Cintora-Silva; and her sister's husband, 32-year-old Max Aguirre Ojeda.
