The killings have occurred last sunday, May 9, after midnight.

Teodoro Macias, 28, brought a semi-automatic pistol to a birthday celebration in a trailer park in Colorado Springs, shot his girlfriend Sandra Ibarra-Perez and five others in attendance, and then committed suicide.

Two of the three birthday people were killed. The shooting came just two months after the supermarket massacre in Boulder, Colorado, in which 11 people were shot dead.

Police said the Colorado Springs gunman had a conflict with the girl's family and was often jealous of other men.

“Domestic violence is at the heart of this heinous crime,” Colorado Springs Police Chief Vince Niskey told a news conference Tuesday.

“He was not invited to the family celebration, but he responded with fire,” Niski said, adding that the gunman had psychological “problems with a sense of power and control.”

He dated the murdered girl for about a year. He did not get into the field of view of the police.

Macias fired 17 shots. At the celebration were children aged two, five and 11 who witnessed the shooting.

The youngest of the five victims was 30 years old, the oldest killed, his mother, was 52. Four of the five victims were close relatives.

"Quiet" man with arms

One of the witnesses at the party told reporters that the shooter was a “quiet” and “serious” man who always carried a weapon with him.

According to police, the semi-automatic pistol was not the shooter's legal property.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis in a statement called the incident "a terrible manifestation of violence."

In late March, the state was rocked by gunfire in the city of Boulder. The 21-year-old attacker then opened fire in a supermarket for some unknown reason. 11 people were killed, and he himself was detained.
