Tingirides said the investigation was in its early stages, but it appeared that a dispute led one family member to shoot two others. Another family member also got a gun and opened fire on the original shooter.Family members identified the two who died as Ponstella Everson and her son-in-law Michael Pineda. Relatives learned from police that investigators believe Pineda was the initial aggressor, wounding his wife, Tonya, and killing his mother-in-law. Ponstella Everson's son Ronald, Tonya's brother, also became involved.
"He defended her," said Donna Harris, who identified herself as a cousin of Ponstella Everson. It was Harris's understanding that Ronald Everson shot to death Pineda.
