Officials: Man kills daughter, wounds second with 3 grandchildren in home

Posted:

OROSI, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a Central California man shot his two adult daughters on Monday, killing one and critically injuring the other before apparently committing suicide while his three young grandchildren were in the home.

An 8-year-old girl called to report gunfire before dawn, and deputies arrived to find 63-year-old Anthony Alvarez dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The shooting happened in Orosi, a town about 20 miles southeast of Fresno.

The dead daughter was identified as Jennifer Kimble. She was the mother of the three children in the home -- two boys ages 13 and 11, and the 8-year-old girl. Kimble's sister Valerie Alvarez was critically wounded.

Officials say the children were unharmed and reunited with their father, who was at work during the shootings
