3 dead, 1 injured in shooting at California home

Posted: Updated:

FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A shooting inside a home Saturday left three people dead, including the suspected shooter, after what investigators believe was a dispute among roommates, a police spokesman said.

Fairfield police received a call from a man inside the home shortly after noon reporting that he had been shot and that the shooter was firing at other people, said Officer Cleo Mayoral.

Officers surrounded the house, and when they entered, they found a man and a woman dead.

A third man, believed to be the shooter, was critically injured with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Mayoral said. He was taken to a local trauma center, where he later died.

The man who phoned police was shot in the foot and was being treated at a hospital, Mayoral said.

Police believe the four victims were roommates.

Mayoral said Saturday's shooting was not the first time police had been called to the residence in Fairfield, about 40 miles northeast of San Francisco.

"Officers have been there several times in the past involving disturbances," he said.

Investigators were trying to determine the exact relationships between the victims and what may have caused the deadly altercation.

Police did not release the victims' names.
