Lake Havasu City police have identified five people killed by a man who entered a home in the Arizona community and started shooting, then fled with his two children.

Police say the alleged gunman, identified as 26-year-old Brian Diez, was found dead early Sunday in California of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and the two young children were safe with relatives.

Officers say they found 23-year-old Deborah Langstaff, 24-year-old Primo Verdone, 42-year-old Russell Nyland and 20-year-old Ashley Nyland dead and 20-year-old Brock Kelson and 44-year-old Deborah Nyland wounded at a Lake Havasu City home.

Police say Kelson later died at Havasu Regional Medical Center.

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.
