 - Teen Spurned by Girl Kills Her, Himself By...
Teen Spurned by Girl Kills Her, Himself By VIRGINIA ESCALANTE and TIM WATERS. Times Stall Writers A rejected teen-age suitor invaded his former girlfriend's Santa Fe Springs home at gunpoint Wednesday morning, shooting her and her sister to death and wounding two others before commiting suicide. Los Angeles County Sheriffs deputies said Felix Cuevas, 17, apparently spent the night in an adjacent garage before he walked into the house at about 7:15 a.m., carrying a sawed-off .22-caliber rifle. His first victims his former girlfriend's sister, Jeanette Morales, 14, whom he shot to death, and their brother, Patrick, 20, and sister, Re-nee, 15, both of whom suffered severe wounds reportedly were finishing breakfast in the kitchen when he opened fire. The gunman then dashed upstairs to the bedroom of his former girlfriend, Anna. 17, deputies said. Cuevas shot her to death as she lay in bed before turning the gun on himself, the officers said. Came Out Screaming Patrick staggered to the home of a neighbor, Rachel Garcia, who called sheriff's deputies. Moments later, the victims' mother, Patricia Morales, emerged from her home screaming, "Felix went crazy and shot my babies!" Garcia said. Patrick and Renee were taken to Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in Whittier, where both later were reported in fair condition. Each had been shot once, with the bullet in each case passing through an arm and into the abdomen, investigators said. Neighbors said Anna, a senior at Santa Fe High School, and Cuevas, a former student there who had been employed recently at a metal plating shop in Whittier, had mutually agreed two weeks ago to break off their 214 -year relationship. But a week later, Cuevas asked her to go out with him and she agreed, sheriff's Lt. Gerald Minnis said. During the date, an argument developed and Cuevas slapped and struck her, he said, adding that she later filed a complaint against Cuevas. Please see SPURNED, Page 8
