WESTMINSTER (AP) — Police say an Orange County man shot his sister to death before turning the gun on himself.

A caller who reported hearing five to six gunshots sent Westminster police to a home on Navajo Road at about 11 p.m. Thursday.

A police statement says a woman met officers in the front yard and told them that her son had killed her daughter.

The sister was found dead in the hallway and the man’s body was found in the backyard.

Their names were not immediately released and there’s no word on the motive for the killings.
