Police: Texas welfare standoff mom had gun in 2010
Police report from 2010 shows Texas mom in welfare standoff found with gun on beach in 2010
By The Associated Press

LAREDO, Texas (AP) ' A newly released police report says the Texas mother who shot her two kids and then herself inside a state welfare office had a gun while the family stayed on a beach last year.

The report released Wednesday by the Kleberg County sheriff's office says Rachelle Grimmer told a deputy in September 2010 that she carried a pistol for protection. She also showed the deputy food stamps and said they were vacationing from New York.

Laredo police say Grimmer used a .38-caliber handgun in last week's standoff at a state welfare office that had denied her food stamps. Her children, 12-year-old Ramie and 10-year-old Timothy, died a few days later from their gunshot wounds.

The 2010 report indicates Grimmer behaved erratically and was suspicious of the deputy.
