Gunman and three hostages found dead at California veterans home: police spokesman

YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (Reuters) - Three women and a gunman who held them hostage at a California veterans home were found dead late on Friday, bringing a tragic end to an all-day siege at the sprawling facility for aging and disabled former members of the U.S. military, police said.

A state senator earlier told reporters that the gunman was a member of the Pathway Home, a program for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, and that the hostages were believed to be employees of the facility.
