DENVER — Authorities have released the names of a teenage boy and his mother, who were involved in a murder-suicide at a Highlands Ranch home.

Ron Hanavan, a spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, says deputies and SWAT team members were called to the home near Northridge Park at about 8 p.m. Friday after a report of a shooting. Authorities say the teenager barricaded himself inside the home, and officers found his and his mother's body when they forced their way inside at about midnight.

The county coroner's office says 15-year-old Robert Klamo died from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. His mother, 46-year-old Tatiana Klamo, died from multiple gunshot wounds, and her death was ruled a homicide.

The Denver Post reports ( ) another woman injured her back jumping out of a window to escape.
