murder_suicideCBSNews.com reports that a man who fatally shot four people in rural Washington state yesterday – including at least three family members – has been identified as 51-year-old David Wayne Campbell.

Campbell’s victims included his wife and her two teenage sons. Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell was withholding the identity of the fourth victim pending notification of relatives. A 12-year-old girl was able to escape the home where the murders took place and was not shot.

Campbell called a police officer he had previously encountered yesterday morning and confessed to killing his family. Following a three-hour-plus standoff, Campbell emerged from the home and shot himself in front of police.
