ENGLEWOOD, Calif.- Authorities found at least five bodies in a Southern California house Monday after a standoff with a man who had barricaded himself inside the home.

The dead included adults and children, Inglewood police Lt. Bill Thompson said.

Investigators discovered the bodies just before 3 p.m. Authorities did not know how long the victims had been dead, Thompson said.

The barricaded suspect shot himself after an hours-long standoff, according to Los Angeles television station KCAL.

Authorities found the bodies a short time later.
