Police arrested the 25-year-old mom after she shot and killed her 17-month-old son and four-year-old daughter — how awful.

Police were called on August 11 after Perla Morales, 25, shot her children Richard Rosovich Jr., 17 months, and Emma Rosovich, 4.

After shooting her two children, Perla shot herself but her injuries were not life-threatening.

The 17-month-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Perla’s daughter was sent to the hospital but later died from her injuries.

“Initial indications were that the mother of the children was home alone with them when the incident occurred,” according to Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tuscon police spokesman.

“While in the residence with both kids, she retrieved a handgun and shot both of her children.  The injuries that she sustained appeared to be self-inflicted, but were not life-threatening,”

According to police,the investigation is ongoing and the motive is still unknown.
