The three shooting victims have been transported to a local hospital. Police have not released their condition.

While looking inside the burnt out home, investigators found the body of the suspected gunman and the body of a fourth victim.

One resident of the burning house arrived on the scene after his friend notified him that his house was on fire.

He tried to contact his five other roommates, who have not responded.

Officers are asking anyone to report how the fire started if they have any information.

Nearby Harvard Elementary School was placed on lockdown as a precaution, but was not evacuated.
