The shooters name is Martin Gonzales Jr.
He was at a house party in Holbrook, AZ when a fight broke out that he was a part of. He was kicked out of the party only to return aprox. 10 minutes later.
When they opened the door Martin immediately opened fire. He shot one woman with children and killed her instantly. He then shot another man 4 times. He is in critical condition. His wife was shot next in the stomach and is in a coma and in critical condition. He then shot another woman in the thigh and she is in stable condition.
Martin is on the run and is thought to be in route to either Mexico or Texas. There is an award for his arrest.

I hope they catch this guy!!! Missy was friendly with everyone1 She never deserved to be killed. This man is a loser for shooting all these ladies. This has hit all of our hearts. I hate the fact that we have to go out and hire workes out of our state and bring all these losers into our town!!

Sadly, this is what out lil town has come to... I grew up in Holbrook and am deeply saddened by the recent events. Living in Holbrook, you become a part of a family. When something happens to someone it happens to the entire town. I haven't lived in Holbrook for over 11 yrs but this still hurts. Missy will never be forgotten.
As hard and upsetting as this may be for everyone else, Please remember Tasha (Missy's Mom)... yes Missy's siblings and Father are hurting too but there is no greater pain than for a Mother to lose a child so tragically and so senselessly....

And for those who don't know, Cheriee Hollin's was killed in a car accident yesterday in or near Payson. So please keep the Hollin's family in your prayers also. We all know how protective Delphine & Oasker Lee were of Cheriee, so you all know they are taking this really hard.

And Van Serna (Mother to all of Steve, Billy, & Marcie's classmates) you have always been very outspoken and defensive when it came to the children of Holbrook. Right or wrong, you were going to make sure you were heard and you always stood your ground. Glad to see you have not changed.
May Billy rest in peace....

I believe you have ypour facts wrong about the police. First of all, the type of people you run around with are always in trouble. You always complain or blame others but take no culpability for your actions. It is not the police departments fault that those of you who choose to gather, seek trouble. Get a life. Clean your closet before you start blaming others. The shooter will not get away, people always reap what they sow and your single rambling will not help. It is people like you who give the rest of us a bad name.

To the who wrote this nonsense, I grew up in Holbrook and have since relocated after graduating from Holbrook High and no matter what you may have done or what mistakes you may have made in your life it still DOES NOT give someone the right to take your life. There is only one judge and that is GOD who are you to say that because someone associates with one person or another that means that they deserve to die for some sensless reason. I think maybe you should bite your tongue because as you stated "you reap what you sew". Missy was a great person and so were the 3 others that were shot they all have children who certainly do not deserve to grow up with out their parents. There is not any reason that this should have taken place, it was a stupid sensless act. My heart goes out to those families who have been affected by this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. May god give you the strength to cope in your times of sorrow and need.

The comment I wrote was not directed to those involved in the tragedy. Maybe I did not make myself clear. You are right, "There is ONLY one judge"...My comment was directed to Van directly who is constantly blowing her horn about this or that. She is always on her soapbox blaming others. I, too, lived in Holbrook, and had to see and care for those who inflicted the harm on others...so I do believe I have a say. It is not till you are caring for someone who was injured in the middle of some senseless confrontation that you can cast judgement on me. There were always those "few" who stood around blaming the authorities for everything. It is time those "few" took responsibility for their actions and stopped blaming those of us who have to clean up their mess! It is a shear tragedy these small children have to be without their parents and I have the deepest sympathy for the children and families that this has touched. As I said before, I pray for Holbrook and the youth of that city, and will stand by what I say as a person of conviction.

I grew up with Snoop(MISSY)and her family...her little brother is one of my best friends...I also grew up with Sonia...her little brother Sam is one of my good friends. We all lived on the same street...stingleys across the street and bacas on the corner of 400 block. I even grew up with Van Sernas...Cody and Angel, Holbrook is a very close knit community....and for anybody to say that Missy deserved this should burn in hell. Much props to whoever said the thing about the scumbags being brought to our town for work and killing people we grew up with...they can leave for all I care. Our prayers go out to tasha, shoma, cory, tyler, jackie, the bacas, baldys, and to holbrook as a whole....we come together in times like these.

i 2 was shocked to hear of this senseless act just goes to show you that even tho u may "think" u r having a "good time" partying it up with yer "frens" there is always going to be some1 who has had "too much" and decides to raise some hell, thinks they are ok to drive or whatever it may be i have witnessed some pretty crazy stuff in my days of "partying" and i have lost SO MANY frens to alcohol related events. WAKE UP GUYS, do we have to loose ALL or "bro's"? You would think that we have learned our lesson from losing our "family" to party related incidents and yet it is clear that so many of us continue to do the same thing and never learn from their loss YOUNG PEOPLE GET WISE is it really worth it? my heart goes out to Missy's family, she was a kind person and was @ the wrong place @ the wrong time - it seems to always happen that way RIP girl! and may ALL our "fallen" bro's RIP also!

Van dont blame all the Holbrook officers for the problems that take lace in this town! These people choose to go to an after the bar party. I personally wont go to one it aint the cops fault for this. Your husband chose to be there also you didnt let the readers know he and another women were in one of the bedrooms!

Why does everyone blame others!! Come on you adults act like the person you were raised to be. Its time that mothers realize stay home and take care of your children instead of going out to parties. The girl who gor shot in the leg ites time you realize your a single mother who needs to think of her childrens hygeine then of her own. It breaks my heart to know that you cant come their hair and put appropriate clothing on them when you take them out.

MY POINT EXACTLY!!!!! Some people never change. It is truly a shame that these things happen and unfortunately innocent children and families have to pay the price. I, for one, cannot believe that adults continue to neglect their children and HAVE to party. It is time to grow up.

Unfortunately, if these adults were raised properly, they have either chosen to forget or more importantly, CHOOSE to continue to behave this way. They choose to waste their energy blaming authorities and others. Their time would be more wisely spent raising their children to be productive adults instead of grooming them for more of the same. "Children are a mirror image of their parents" These children have no hope of a successful future as long as this pattern continues. May God save these innocent children!
