After a dispute inside their Greensboro home on Monday, North Carolina woman, Sandra Palmer, 47, shot her two children and their father before killing herself, Police Chief Ken Miller said last Tuesday during a press conference.
Her 14-year-old son, Maurice Edmonds II, died at the scene from his wounds.
Her 18-year-old daughter, Danielle Imani Jameison, and boyfriend, Maurice Eugene Edmonds Sr., 46, were listed in fair condition at a local hospital.
Though Edmonds, Sr. and Palmer were unmarried, they had been in a 17-year relationship.
“It’s very unfortunate and I don’t know what drives people so quickly to jump to firearms to solve a problem. It makes no sense,” Chief Miller said. “We are still trying to understand the motive and the intent behind the assault.”

“She retrieved a firearm and came back in the living room. She maced Mr. Edmonds Sr. to disable him and began to discharge that firearm, striking her son and daughter multiple times,” Miller said.
After Palmer shot her children, police say Edmonds Sr. tried to get the gun away from her before he was shot.
Miller said Palmer then locked herself in another room and shot herself with a second handgun.
