Barnes says Holder confronted her boyfriend just before 9 a.m. and shot him in the shoulder. An hour later, deputies found Holder and she shot herself and one of her sons. Investigators at Holder's home then discovered the other four victims.
Barnes says Holder left behind a note admitting to the shootings and apologizing for her actions.
