Second child shot by mother in welfare office standoff dies

McALLEN, Texas -- Authorities say a 10-year-old boy shot by his mother during a standoff at a Texas welfare office has died.

Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza says Timothy Grimmer died Thursday at a San Antonio hospital. His 12-year-old sister died of her wounds on Wednesday.

Police say their mother, Rachelle Grimmer, shot the children and then killed herself Monday following a standoff with police at a welfare office where they had been denied food stamps.

  • The Texas Department of Health and Human Services says the agency rejected Rachelle Grimmer's application because she didn't submit enough information.
