San Diego shooting Leaves 5 dead
Five members of a family, including three children, died in a shooting at a home in the Paradise Hills neighborhood of San Diego, police said Saturday.
Another child was injured and operated, authorities said.
The suspect is said to be among the dead, murder commissioner Matt Dobbs told reporters in front of the house.
According to OnSceneTV, the first emergency call in the department in the southeast of the city came at 6:49 am, Dobbs said. The caller did not speak with the dispatcher, but in the background, the discussion was heard.
While officers were heading home, a relative who lived next door reported 911 and heard what was being discussed and what looked like a nail gunshot, Dobbs said.
The incoming officers received no response when they knocked on the front door. They returned and looked out a window where they saw a bloody child on the floor, Dobbs said. Officers broke a window to enter the house and found several people suffering from gunshot wounds.

A 3-year-old boy, a 29-year-old woman, and a 31-year-old man were dead at the scene. A 5-year-old boy and 9-year-old boy were taken to a hospital, where they died. An 11-year-old boy was hospitalized and undergoing surgery on Saturday morning.
No names were published.
Detectives did not say which family member the shooter should be and led the ongoing investigation. It was not clear if the alleged shooter died of a self-inflicted wound.
“There are no suspects pending at this time,” Dobbs said.
A weapon was found in the house, but authorities have not said what type.
Dobbs said a mother and four children lived in a separate apartment next to the main house where other family members lived. It was not clear how many people lived on the site in total.
