Calif. police seek motive in slaying of 3

STOCKTON, Calif. — Authorities in Northern California were seeking a motive Monday in a home-invasion shooting that left three adult family members dead and two wounded and sent a child fleeing to a house for safety.

The triple murder happened shortly before midnight Friday in Stockton. Sheriff’s deputies responded after receiving a 911 call from a man who reported that he, his girlfriend, and other family members had been shot. Deputies arrived and found three of the victims — a couple in their 50s and their son — dead at the scene, Deputy Les Garcia said.
