Suspect in Los Angeles-area shootings arrested

By

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say a suspect in shootings that left three people dead and four others injured in the northern suburbs of Los Angeles has been taken into custody.

Sgt. Frank Preciado says a suspect was taken into custody following a Sunday night standoff at a house in Sylmar.

No further details were released pending a police news conference scheduled later Sunday.

Police said the shootings happened within the span of an hour in the San Fernando Valley area, and that the random attacks may have been carried out by the same gunmen.
