His first victims were finishing breakfast his former girlfriend's sister, Jeanette Morales, 14, whom he shot to death, and her brother, Patrick, 20, and sister, Renee, 15, both of whom suffered severe wounds investigators said The gunman reportedly then dashed upstairs to the bedroom of his former girlfriend, Anna, 16. He shot her dead before turning the gun on himself, officers said. Patrick Morales staggered to the home of a neighbor, Susan Garcia, who called sheriff's deputies. Patrick and Renee Morales, and Cuevas were taken to Whittier-Presbyterian Hospital, where Cuevas was pronounced dead. Renee was in critical condition; her brother's condition was stable. Neighbors said Anna Morales, a student at Santa Fe Springs High School, and Cuevas, a former student who was unemployed, had argued heatedly recently.
