LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Police say five people were killed by a man who entered a home in an Arizona community and started shooting, then fled with his two children.

Police say the alleged gunman was discovered dead early Sunday in California of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The two young children were found safe with relatives.

Lake Havasu City dispatchers received an emergency call late Saturday night from a woman who said an intruder had come into a home and shot several people.

Officers responding to the scene found four people dead and two wounded. They say one of the wounded later died.
The other victim was hospitalized in Las Vegas.
