Update Friday 6-8-2018 - The Flores family has issued a statement.
The family of Abraham (Abe) Flores would like to thank everyone who has supported our family during this difficult time. Abe successfully coped with his mental illness until just recently he was diagnosed with a brain tumor that was affecting his motor skills, memory and speech. Because of Abe’s desire to be private and not worry his family we were unaware of the emotional impact that this made on him. Prior to his illness and even while he was managing it he was a wonderful human being he was a loving son, brother and an amazing uncle. Our prayers go out to the officers and the first responders as this is a difficult time for all of us. We would like to ask for privacy during this difficult time and we request that personal opinions and comments stay off of social media and public forums.
Thank you from the family of Abraham (Abe) Flores.
