SAN ANTONIO — Before Monday, Ramie Grimmer’s Facebook page read like that of any other 12 year old girl with numerous friends, discussions about skateboarding, text messaging and “my annoying little brother.”
But about two hours after her mother had taken Ramie and her brother Timothy Grimmer, 10, and a human services worker hostage at a state office in Laredo, Texas, she posted the words, ‘may die 2day,’ police said on Wednesday.
The standoff ended late on Monday with Rachelle Grimmer shooting Ramie and Timothy once each in the head and then killing herself, police said.
Ramie and Timothy were flown to a San Antonio hospital in extremely critical condition after the shooting. Later Ramie died, while Timothy remains in critical condition on Thursday.
