THREE children were saved from a home where two people were killed after they made chilling 911 calls to police.
SWAT teams scrambled to find murder suspect Javier Acevedo, 49, after receiving calls from juveniles who said they were hiding from a gunman inside the house.
The first call was from a 12-year-old who said that their mother had been shot, before a second call came in from a 14-year-old two minutes later saying they were hiding after a shooting inside the home.
Officers rushed to the scene in Loveland, Colorado, on Thursday after receiving the disturbing emergency phone calls.
Authorities found a 41-year-old deceased female at the house alongside a 16-year-old with gunshot wounds.
Another 5-year-old child was also safely located inside the home, before officers discovered and saved 2-year-old in the backyard.
