Four people are dead after a horrific murder-suicide in Selma.
Fresno Sheriff's deputies say it all started with a phone call this morning, from a man who said he just killed four people and was about to kill himself.
But its a situation that actually dates back to 1996.
That's when Interpol officials say Avtar Singh killed human rights lawyer Jaleel Andrabi.
Singh was a decorated major in the Indian army, and his wife sought to prove him innocent, while India was seeking Singh's extradition.
But Singh was arrested in March of last year on domestic violence charges, and today Fresno Sheriff's deputies say he killed his family before turning the gun on himself.
This tragedy has absolutely shocked the Selma community. Neighbors, friends and authorities are trying to figure out just exactly how this all happened.
Avtar Singh lived a troubled life but no one expected it to end like this.
It was a tragic morning in Selma.
A wife and 2 kids shot in the head, another son hospitalized, hanging on to life.
Authorities say Avtar Singh, the woman's husband, the children's father, is responsible and admitted it over the phone to police.
"He reported that he had killed his family and that he was going to kill himself."
Selma Police responded, along with the Fresno County Sheriff's Department.
The SWAT team sent a robot into Singh's home. He was already dead.
His 3 year old, his 15 year old son and wife were also dead.
Julian Pascua captured some video on his cell phone from across the street as paramedics rushed Singh's 17 year old son to the hospital.
He's alive but suffered severe head trauma.
"They don't seem like a violent neighbor...They had kids playing outside, I remember seeing the high school student walk home from school...I didn't expect that."
His sister Hannah went to school with the 15 year old.
She texted him when the swat team showed up hoping everything was okay.
"He was a happy kid...It's just tragic what happened it's unexpected."
Singh lived a troubled life.
He was wanted for murder in India, but was never extradited.
He was also arrested a year and a half ago for domestic violence.
Alli Adan, a close friend who didn't want to be on camera, says Singh was stressed over money and his trucking company.
"He was always crying, the business is bad...He had a lot of trucks break down...He was having that problem, money wise problem."
Friends have questions and authorities are searching for answers, but we may never know what really made singh pull the trigger.
Avtar Singh's 17 year old son is still in the hospital. He went into surgery this morning. His condition is unknown at this time.
