Both Alvarez daughters were present in the home along with one daughter’s three children aged 8, 11 and 13. The father fired his gun at the oldest daughter and killed 37 year old Jennifer Kimble. He shot and wounded her 33 year old sister, Valerie Alvarez. Jennifer sustained multiple gunshots and was declared dead at the scene. 33 year old Valerie sustained what is believed to be a single gunshot wound. She was airlifted to a trauma center in Fresno where doctors performed surgery and stabilized her condition.
Anthony Alvarez was aware that his grandchildren were in the house but did not attempt to harm them. It was the eight year old granddaughter who heard the shots and called 911. By the time police had arrived her mother was dead, her aunt was seriously wounded and Mr. Alvarez had taken his own life with the same firearm. Valerie Alvarez is recovering in a hospital and the three children are now in the care of their father.
