A shooting rampage on a California Indian reservation has left 4 dead, including the gunman and 3 people wounded.
The man, whom authorities have identified as 31-year-old Hector Celaya, was fatally wounded in a shootout with detectives after a car chase.
Celaya began his rampage Saturday night on the Tule River Indian Reservation in Porterville, Calif., authorities said.
According to NBC news, "Deputies responding to a 911 call found a man and a woman dead inside a trailer and a male juvenile suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. At a shed on the same property, deputies found the body of another man."
Authorities gave chase to Celaya who fled in a Jeep Cherokee with his two young daughters. It was after Celaya had pulled off to the side of the road that he was shot.
The two girls, ages 5 and 8, also suffered gunshot wounds.
"During the preliminary investigation, detectives learned the suspect had shot the children," the sheriff's office said in a statement according to Reuters.
The girls were taken to a hospital where one was receiving treatment for life-threatening injuries. The young man that was shot by Celaya was also transported to a hospital for treatment.
