Police: Multiple victims in Ariz. home shooting

GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) -- Police in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert say five people have died in a shooting, including the gunman.

Gilbert police Lt. John Lyle told The Arizona Republic that authorities aren't looking for a suspect in Wednesday afternoon's shooting at a home. Police did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

Authorities say the gunman's identity and motives aren't known. The names of the other four dead haven't been released.

The shootings occurred after 1 p.m. in a residential area.

A junior high school in the area was released from lockdown status just before 2 p.m. Witnesses say a SWAT team sealed off part of the area and that investigators told residents to remain indoors.
