(Sgt. Douglas) “Suspect was identified as Hector Celaya.  He’s age 31, from the Tule Indian Reservation.”

…Who sheriff’s deputies say they exchanged gunfire with after a pursuit and traffic stop.  They also tell us the suspect shot his two young daughters during the stop, before police shot him.  The suspect and his daughters are also being treated.  No motive, and we’re told the investigation continues.
