SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) — The latest on the murder-suicide at a home in suburban Atlanta (all times local):
Authorities say the night before a man killed his wife and her two sons in a murder-suicide, deputies had visited the home on a domestic violence call.
Maj. Rick Doyle of the Forsyth County sheriff's office said Wednesday that when police arrived on Tuesday night, everyone at the house was uncooperative and there were no signs of any physical altercation.
Doyle was not sure who called police. He says there were indications that Matthew Fields and Rebecca Manning were having relationship troubles. Fields was not at the home when deputies arrived Tuesday night.
Police say Fields shot Manning and her sons to death before killing himself. He also critically wounded Manning's father.
Police in suburban Atlanta say a gunman killed a woman and her two children before killing himself.
Forsyth County sheriff's officials identified the gunman Wednesday as 32-year-old Matthew Fields. They say he was the boyfriend or perhaps husband of the woman he killed, 37-year-old Rebecca Manning. Her two boys, 8-year-old Jared Smith and 9-year-old Jacob Smith, were also killed.
Fields critically wounded Manning's father, 75-year-old Jerry Manning.
Police have not released a motive for the shooting. They say all of the victims lived at the home.
Authorities have released documents that describe a 911 call about a murder-suicide in suburban Atlanta.
Police say a gunman killed a woman and two children, critically wounded another man and then killed himself.
A relative in another county called 911 about 6 a.m. Wednesday because they were worried about the family. The caller said his wife was on the phone with her son and her son said he had shot four people and was going to kill himself, according documents detailing the call.
The caller said he and his wife were headed to the home and were 30 minutes away. The dispatcher said the caller advised of his wife: "She will be the only one that can talk to him."
Police have said a family was wiped out but they don't have a motive.
The identifying information in the documents was redacted.
Authorities say four were killed, including the shooter and two children under the age of 10, in a domestic-related shooting at a suburban Atlanta home.
Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper says an uninvolved family member called 911 about 6 a.m. Wednesday to report the shooting. Deputies found one man and two children under the age of 10 dead from gunshot wounds. Another man and woman were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds. Piper says the woman later died and the man is in critical condition.
Piper calls the shooting "domestic-related" and says it all took place inside the home.
He also says it appears all the victims lived at the home. Names haven't been released.
He says a motive is unknown.
Previously, officials said the shooter was known to officers from past arrest.
The home where five people were shot in metro Atlanta is a modest, one-story, ranch-style residence — a contrast to the expansive houses surrounding it in the south Forsyth County suburb.
One block up the street is Old Atlanta Road, which winds past golf course communities and expansive homes in a heavily wooded area.
Just a few yards from the home is the entrance to the Olde Atlanta Club, a golf course community along the Chattahoochee River.
Four people were killed and one wounded in the Wednesday morning shooting about 30 miles northeast of the city. Officials say there's no threat to the public.
Sheriff's officials planned to release more details during a 10 a.m. briefing at True Way Baptist Church, a small congregation directly across the road from the house.
A sheriff's office in suburban Atlanta says four people have been killed and one wounded in a shooting at a home northeast of the city.
Forsyth County sheriff's Deputy Robin Regan says officers initially found three people dead and two wounded in the Wednesday morning shooting, and one of the two hurt later died.
Maj. Rick Doyle of the sheriff's office says the suspected shooter was one of those wounded. It wasn't clear whether the suspect or the other person had died.
Doyle says the suspect is known among officers from previous arrests.
The area where authorities think the shooting occurred, on Old Atlanta Road about 30 miles outside the city, includes some of metro Atlanta's most exclusive neighborhoods. The road winds past golf course communities and expansive homes in a heavily wooded area.
