|Rachelle Grimmer and her two children were a struggling family living in a rundown trailer park. The Texas Dept of Health and Human Services denied her application for food stamps, saying that she did not submit enough information. Grimmer went to a welfare office in Laredo to discuss her case. What happened next was nothing short of horrific -- after a seven-hour standoff with police, Grimmer shot her two children and then herself to death. Update: One of the children, 12-year-old Ramie Grimmer, died at a San Antonio hospital, Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza said. The girl's brother, 10, remained in critical condition.|
