FAIRFIELD, Calif., May 7 (UPI) -- Gunfire in a home in Fairfield, Calif., home Saturday afternoon left a suspected gunman and two other people dead and a fourth injured, police said.

The names of the victims had not been released, The (Vacaville) Reporter said.

Fairfield police Sgt. Jeff Osgood officers were sent to the two-story residence at 12:08 p.m. after authorities received a call from someone inside who said people had been shot and the suspect was still there, the newspaper said.

Osgood said officers found a man and a woman who had been shot to death and two other people, including the suspected shooter, wounded.

The alleged gunman was flown to a hospital in critical condition and he died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Osgood said. The other victim was hospitalized at another facility.
