LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. -- A gunman entered a western Arizona home and killed the mother of his two children and three others before fleeing with the kids to California, where he fatally shot himself, police said Sunday.
In all, six people died. Officers responding to the home said they found four people shot dead and two others wounded. One of the injured died of his wounds early Sunday at a local hospital, police said.
The alleged gunman, identified as 26-year-old Brian Diez, was found dead hours later at a residence in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. The two children -- a 4-year-old and a 13-month-old -- were unharmed at the house with relatives, police said.
Police went to the Lake Havasu City home after dispatchers received an emergency call at 11:57 p.m. Saturday from a woman who said an intruder had shot several people.
Police identified the dead as 23-year-old Deborah Langstaff, 24-year-old Primo Verdone, 42-year-old Russell Nyland and 20-year-old Ashley Nyland. Wounded were 20-year-old Brock Kelson and 44-year-old Deborah Nyland.
At about 3:30 a.m., San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department deputies were sent to the Rancho Cucamonga home about a reported suicide. Deputies found Diez dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.
Diez fathered the two children with Deborah Langstaff during a long-term relationship, but the couple had been estranged, Lake Havasu City police said.
