SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot and killed his three children, their chaperone and himself during a supervised visit with the kids at a church in Sacramento, California.
An official says deputies responding to reports of gunfire around 5 p.m. Monday found five people dead, including the shooter, at the church in the Arden-Arcade neighborhood.
The victims included three juveniles under 15 years old.
The sheriff says the shooter was estranged from the children’s mother, who had a restraining order against him.
Investigators believe the shooting happened during a supervised visit with the children and the fourth victim was their chaperone.
This is a developing story and will be updated once more information is available.
