A Texas mother who was desperate over being denied food stamps shot her two children and then committed suicide after a seven-hour standoff with SWAT teams at a state welfare office, authorities said.
Caseworkers took Grimmer to a private room, where the distraught mom pulled a gun and threatened employees, authorities said.
Police negotiators spent the next several hours trying to persuade Grimmer to bring her children out safely, but she refused, instead haranguing them about the red tape she grappled with while trying to feed her family, The Associated Press reported. Finally, just before midnight, cops heard three shots and stormed the building, where they discovered Grimmer lying dead in a pool of blood. Authorities told the AP that Grimmer was denied food stamps because she had left some key information out of her initial application. She and her children had recently moved to Texas from Ohio and appeared to be struggling to say on their feet.


Grimmer had last contacted the agency in mid-November, but had fallen out of touch since then, Goodman said. The Annual National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive takes place each May.
