In Springfield, Massachusetts, a man broke into the home of his neighbor and shot her dead before shooting her grandchildren. The condition of one of the kids is critical. Sadly, he ultimately committed suicide, according to information from authorities on Tuesday.

Victor Nieves was named as the individual. Tuesday saw a report from the Hampden District Attorney’s Office regarding the incident from the day before.

Victor Nieves was who?

The age of Victor Nieves was 34. On Berkshire Avenue, Victor Nieves is charged with breaking into his neighbor’s apartment, which is part of a shared multi-family home. After that, he allegedly began firing on the nearby family.

The unfortunate incident resulted in the deaths of the neighbor in question, 52-year-old Kim Fairbanks, and a dog. Additionally, two other girls, ages 12 and 10, were shot. The 10-year-old was transported by air to Boston Children’s Hospital, where she is currently in critical condition. The 12-year-old patient is doing well while receiving care at Baystate Medical Center. Fortunately, their 5-year-old younger brother suffered no physical injuries. The three children are, as the district attorney revealed, Fairbanks’ grandchildren.

Despite their best efforts, investigators have been unable to identify a plausible reason for the shooting. In a statement, district attorney Anthony D. Gulluni stated, “This is without a doubt one of the most heinous and cowardly acts I have had to witness in my role as district attorney. My thoughts and prayers are with the parents of these kids as well as Ms. Fairbanks’ family and loved ones. We will do everything we can as investigators to assist this family as we continue and wrap up the criminal investigation.”

Cheryl C. Clapprood, the superintendent of the Springfield Police Department, said in a statement, “This is an absolute tragedy, and I am praying for this family. This is one of the most tragic incidents I can recall in my more than forty years with the Springfield Police Department.”
