A father and son were among the victims of a gunman who remains at large in Inglewood, California, police said.
Police found the mother across the street from the family home, holding a 4-year-old boy who would later die. She herself was shot in the knee and pelvis.
Inside the home, police found the father, 30, huddling over his other children. He too, would succumb to his injuries, police said.
The gunman also shot two other children, a 6-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl. The girl was in critical condition and the boy was stable, police said.
A fire destroyed a house in the back of the main property.
