Gallegos was shot multiple times and pronounced dead. Joseph died from a single gunshot to the head. Police say he moved from New York and was staying at the home with Gallegos and her sons for two months. Police say he is not the father of the boys, ages 5, 7 and 11.

“Right now, the evidence at the scene and the preliminary information we have from the children in the home is that it’s a murder-suicide,” said Lt. Derrick Alfred.

The three boys were removed from the home and placed with family members. A firearm was recovered at the scene.
