    Relatives of a woman who was shot and killed in a triple shooting inside a Homestead clubhouse tell NBC 6 that the gunman was her estranged husband.

    Family members have identified the victim as 41-year-old Tania Adams, a mother of three boys. According to Miami-Dade Police, a 51-year-old man relatives identified as Adams' estranged husband opened fire on her and a 28-year-old male coworker just after 8 p.m. Thursday inside the clubhouse at the Isles at Oasis located near the intersection of Mediterranean and Pacific Boulevard.

    Police say the man then turned the gun on himself, leaving the male coworker as the lone survivor.

    Both Adams and the male shooting victim were employees at the clubhouse, relatives tell NBC 6. According to police, the 28-year-old male coworker was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he is listed in critical but stable condition.

    A preliminary investigation suggests that Adams and her estranged husband got into some sort of dispute

    "Preliminary investigation is letting us know that perhaps there was an argument. There was some type of dispute where a 51-year-old male produced a firearm, shot the female that was inside the clubhouse, shot the second victim that was transported and then, from what it appears, he shot himself," said Alvaro Zabaleta with MDPD.

    A woman who identified herself as Adams' sister tells NBC 6 she believes the male coworker was trying to help her sister, but ended up being shot himself.

    She did not know whether Adams and her male coworker were in a relationship, but says that the male and her sister were friends.

    Police said the surviving victim will be a key witness in explaining to investigators what happened.

    Adam's family members have established a GoFundMe page to help cover her funeral expenses.
