Oklahoma City Police have released the identities of the five individuals who tragically lost their lives in a quadruple murder and suicide incident. The victims have been identified as Cassandra Flores (29 years old), Hillary Armendariz (9 years old), Damaris Armendariz (5 years old), and Matias Armendariz (2 years old). The suspect, who also died, has been identified as Ruben Armendariz (28 years old).

The incident occurred at a residence in the 7400 block of NW 5th Terrace late in the evening. When authorities arrived at the scene, they discovered five individuals suffering from gunshot wounds, with three of them already deceased. The suspect and one of the children were still alive at that time and were immediately taken to nearby hospitals. Unfortunately, they both succumbed to their injuries later on.

Investigations have revealed that Ms. Flores and Mr. Armendariz were married but separated. It is believed that Mr. Armendariz shot the four victims before turning the gun on himself. The exact motive behind this devastating act is still under investigation, and authorities are working diligently to uncover the circumstances leading up to it.

The Oklahoma City Police Department is urging anyone with information related to this incident to come forward and contact the Homicide Tip-Line at 405/297-1200..
