SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A gunman likely killed four people and then himself before police arrived in a California cul-de-sac neighborhood, authorities said Monday.
Officers responding to reports of shots fired Sunday night say they did not hear any gunfire after they arrived at the chaotic, bloody scene in San Jose. They say several people streamed out of the home, including the wife and daughter of the gunman.
Police used an armored vehicle to take two victims, an adult man and woman, away from the house. They were transported to a hospital, where both died.
Two other adult women and the gunman remained inside the residence that officers surrounded and eventually entered around 1:25 a.m. Monday.
They found all three people with at least one gunshot wound. All died at the scene, police said.
"Family members reported that a man at the house had used a handgun to shoot several people inside," police Sgt. Enrique Garcia said.
Garcia said no others were shot.
