Man kills 5 in Ariz., then self: Police
Police say a gunman entered a western Arizona home and fatally shot five people -- including the mother of his two children and her boyfriend -- before fleeing with the kids to Southern California where he killed himself.
The shootings in Lake Havasu City late Saturday occurred as 23-year-old Deborah Langstaff and friends were celebrating her boyfriend's birthday.
Police said Sunday that the alleged gunman, 26-year-old Brian Diez, had fathered a 4-year-old and a 13-month-old with Langstaff.
Lake Havasu City police Sgt. Joe Harrold says Diez was arrested Aug. 13 for violating a protection order Langstaff had against him.
Authorities say Diez fatally shot himself early Sunday at a residence in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. The children were unharmed.
