According to Denver Police, four people were shot, including one woman and three young children. 9NEWS has learned that Mayra Perez, 23, shot her kids and then herself.

A boy and a girl were found dead in the home in the 4900 block of Pearl Street when police arrived, along with Mayra. Tony Nunez, Mayra's older brother, spoke to 9NEWS. He said Eric, who would have been 2 years old soon, as well as his 6-year-old sister Neveah, were the children who were killed at the scene.

One other girl, who Nunez identified as 3-year-old Isabelle, was taken to Denver Health Hospital and is currently undergoing surgery.

Nunez claims she was having an argument Tuesday night when he offered to come get her.

"No, no, we're fine, just a married couple thing," Mayra reportedly told Nunez Tuesday. "We have our discussions like everybody."

Nunez said his brother called and said he was staying at a friend's place Tuesday night.

"Maybe I should have [come to get her,] maybe I would have changed things," Nunez told 9NEWS.
