Gilbert Ramos, 45, opened fire on his family Sept. 21, killing his 10-year-old son Nicholas, his 8-year-old daughter Emma, and critically wounding his wife, Sandra Thompson-Ramos, 37, before turning the gun on himself, according to a news release from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.

All had been shot in the head.

Family members were the first to discover the scene when they were concerned they could not get in touch with their kin who lived in the 1300 block of East Nardini Street in Sun Tran Valley.

After knocking on the door but receiving no response, family members used a key to let themselves inside the home.

They called 911 around 5 p.m. to report the shooting and deputies arrived soon after.

Gilbert and his two children were pronounced dead at the scene while Sandra survived and was air lifted to a local hospital. She remains in extremely critical condition.

Deputies determined that Gilbert first shot his wife and then his two children but have yet to determine a motive.

The investigation continues.

  2. He was a manager of the apartments here, he was outgoing and wellspoken of, really caught us by surprise. He seemed professional and well to do kind of guy. Absolutely no signs of him being depressed or any kind of violence or drugs. We’re very disturbed that the children had to be victims of what ever it was that was troubling him.

    • Its always a surprise– they are ALWAYS such NICE GUYS– thing is these killings dont just happen out of the blue– there is a history of coercive control. Murder being the ultimate and last act of that control.
