Christof owned Specialty Sports & Supply, a local gun shop in Colorado Springs, the outlet reported. Yvette was an Army veteran and stay-at-home-mom for the family’s 9 children.

Alexa Gromko was a family friend of the Krebs since 2010. “This is a devastating loss for this community, and the surviving members are going to need lots of care, compassion, and support,” Gromko said about the alleged murder-suicide, according to The Gazette.

Gromko described Yvette as “a fierce advocate for children with disabilities, adoption, and dwarfism,” The Gazette reported. “She made it her mission to give those children a chance at a good life,” Gromko said about Yvette and the family’s six adopted children from China.

“They had faith as a family. It’s tragic. Whoever did whatever, it’s tragic,” a neighbor said, reported The Gazette.
