PORTERVILLE, Calif. — Authorities say three people are dead and four others, including two young girls, have been wounded after a shooting on an Indian reservation in Central California.

Sheriff's officials in Tulare County say when deputies were called to trailer Saturday night on the Tule Indian Reservation, they found the body of a man and a woman inside. A third body was nearby.

Deputies also found a wounded male juvenile. His condition was not known.

Tulare County authorities did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press seeking details.

The Fresno Bee ( http://bit.ly/WUNeOW) reports that a vehicle with the suspect — 31-year-old Hector Celaya — and his daughters, ages 5 and 8, was pulled over by deputies early Sunday.

The newspaper says Celaya was then wounded during an exchange of gunfire.
