SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. - Police released the 911 calls made moments after they say a father killed his children and wife, then shot himself.

The calls for help came in from other family members after last week's shooting.

Police say Gilbert Ramos shot his wife, 10-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter then reportedly turned the gun on himself.

Family members found the bodies and Ramos' niece was the first to dial 911.

Ramos and his children died at the scene. His wife was taken to the hospital but later died.

Pinal County sheriff's deputies said the family was struggling financially, but at this point, they do not have an official motive.
