SELMA, Calif. (AP) — Fresno County authorities say a Selma man has killed his wife and two of their children before apparently taking his own life.
The Fresno Bee reports that 47-year-old Avtar Singh called Selma police around 6:15 a.m. Saturday and told police that he had killed members of his family and was going to kill himself.
The newspaper says Selma police called Fresno County sheriff's officials and asked for their assistance.
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims says when a sheriff's SWAT team entered the family's home around 8 a.m. they found the bodies of Singh, his wife and two children, ages three and 15.
They also found a wounded teen, believed to be about 17-years-old. The teen was taken to a hospital and is in critical condition with life-threatening wounds.
