A gunman murdered six people before he turned the gun on himself at a family birthday party in Colorado Springs early Sunday morning.

The shooting took place at a family gathering at a trailer park.

The Daily Mail reported:

A man has shot dead six people including his girlfriend at a family birthday party, sparing the sobbing children, before turning the gun on himself in Colorado.

The gunman walked into a birthday party shortly after midnight on Sunday and opened fire before taking his own life at the trailer park in Colorado Springs.

Police arrived to find six people dead plus a seventh who was seriously wounded and died after being taken to a hospital.

‘The children at the trailer were uninjured by the suspect and are now with relatives,’ the police said.

Joana Cruz, 53, and her two sons, Melvin Perez, 30, and Jose Guttierez, 21, were among the victims.

Perez’s wife, Mayra, 32, was also killed along with her sister Sandra Ibarra and brother Jose Ibarra. Sandra Ibarra was said to be the suspect’s girlfriend.

The Denver Post quoted neighbor Yenifer Reyes as saying she was awakened by the sound of gunfire and heard sirens before witnessing police take children out of the home and put them into a squad car.
