PORTERVILLE, Calif. — Authorities said three people are dead and four others — including two young girls — are wounded after a shooting Saturday night on a Tulare County Indian reservation.
Sheriff’s officials said when deputies were called to a trailer on the Tule Indian Reservation at 7:47 p.m. they found the body of a man and a woman in the trailer and a third body – a man – nearby.
Deputies also found a wounded male juvenile. His condition was not known.
Tulare County authorities did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press seeking details, but the Fresno Bee reports that a vehicle with the suspect – 31-year-old Hector Celaya – and his daughters, ages 5 and 8, was pulled over by deputies around 2 a.m. Sunday.
The newspaper said after an exchange of gunfire, Celaya was being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
