A relative says a woman who fatally shot three people and herself at a Seattle home was a grandmother who first killed her son-in-law, then two granddaughters and then wounded her daughter as the younger woman fled.
Police spokesman Sean Whitcomb says officers arrived at the scene about 1:30 Thursday and could still hear shots being fired. Relative Tony Sun, who lived in the house where the shooting happened, tells The Seattle Times that he arrived home shortly after the shootings and was taken onto a police bus with his surviving family members, who told him what had happened.
The wounded woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center and was reported in serious condition.
Neither police nor the King County medical examiner's office have officially identified the victims.
