Keenesburg residents help family

When a father and son died in an apparent murder-suicide in the small town of Keenesburg, a group of children sacrificed months of hard work to help the surviving family members.

Weld County investigators believe Shawn David Kilker, 42, shot and killed his 14-year-old son, Keith, and then took his own life at their Keenesburg home at 455 E. Kiser Ave. on Tuesday. The SWAT team was able to get two males and one female out of the home before the shooting.

“The Kilker family recently lost loved ones due to a tragic event,” Keenesburg resident Sarah Kos told 7NEWS. “Our community also lost what we consider family.” To read more on this story, go to
