Three killed in shooting on Indian reservation in Calif.

PORTERVILLE, Calif.

Three people died and four others, including two young girls, were wounded after a shooting on an Indian reservation in Central California, authorities said.

When deputies were called to a trailer Saturday night on the Tule Indian Reservation, they found the body of a man and a woman inside, Tulare County sheriff’s officials said in a release Sunday. A third body was nearby.

Deputies also found a wounded male juvenile. His condition was not known.

Tulare County authorities did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press seeking details.

The Fresno Bee reported that a vehicle with the suspect — 31-year-old Hector Celaya — and his daughters, ages 5 and 8, was pulled over by deputies early Sunday.

Celaya was then wounded during an exchange of gunfire. He was being treated for life threatening injuries, sheriff’s officials said in their release.

Officials say the girls were hospitalized after they had been earlier shot by their father. One girl suffered life-threatening injuries while the other girl was less seriously hurt.

Sheriff’s officials say they were able find Celaya by tracking his cellphone.

The reservation where the shooting took place is about 50 miles north of Bakersfield.
