Police say a man fatally shot his 5-year-old son and mother-in-law before turning the gun on himself in what is believed to be a murder-suicide near Los Angeles. The Monday night shootings came some eight hours after Torrance police had served the man with a restraining order taken out by his wife.

Officer Dave Crespin says the man returned to the home after being served, then shot his son, his wife and mother-in-law, and himself. His son died at the scene and the older woman later died at a hospital.

Police have not released the names of the gunman or the victims.
