A gunman killed three relatives in a surprise attack witnessed by several children in a home in eastern Tennessee, authorities said.
The 19-year-old attacker was shot and wounded by another family member during his getaway and was captured a short time later, the Sullivan County sheriff's office said.
A half-dozen children were in the home during the shooting spree and one girl was injured, Sheriff Wayne Anderson said.
Leading up to the rampage, the assailant parked his vehicle nearby, walked up a steep hill and opened fire when he reached the house near Bristol, Tennessee, Anderson said Sunday.
"From what I've seen and heard, he just took 'em by surprise," Anderson said. "It just all happened real fast."
Two women with gunshot wounds were found in the kitchen when authorities arrived Saturday evening, he said. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
