SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A woman who for months was unable to qualify for food stamps pulled a gun in a state welfare office on Monday and staged a seven-hour standoff with the police that ended with her shooting her two children before killing herself, officials said.

The children, a 10-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter, were in critical condition Tuesday. The mother was identified as Rachelle Grimmer, 38. A police investigator, Joe Baeza, said Ms. Grimmer had recently moved from Zanesville, Ohio.

Ms. Grimmer first applied for food stamps in July but was denied because she did not turn in enough information, said Stephanie Goodman, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.

Ms. Goodman said it was not immediately clear what information was missing. She said the Grimmers’ last contact with the agency appeared to be a phone call in mid-November. When the family entered the Laredo office on Monday, shortly before 5 p.m., Ms. Grimmer asked to speak to a new caseworker, not the one whom she worked with previously, Ms. Goodman said.

Ms. Goodman said Ms. Grimmer was taken to a private room and she showed a gun and the standoff began.

Police negotiators tried to stay on the phone with Ms. Grimmer throughout the evening, but she kept hanging up, Mr. Baeza said. Around 7:45 p.m., she let a supervisor go unharmed. After hanging up the phone around 11:45 p.m., the police heard three shots. A SWAT team found Ms. Grimmer’s body and her two wounded children.

  1. We have to get rid of money, and or have greedy humans repent,and sell what they have, and give to the poor. Satan is behind the human being pushed to the brink of doing what they do. Killing whoever is bad, but the root cause is money, and or heartless greedy men. not being like Jesus is. The other was never made by Jesus. Both is a bad mixture ending badly for humans. Money should be looked upon like we look at cigarettes.
