Police are calling Saturday afternoon's shooting in Fairfield a murder-suicide after the gunman killed a man and woman and injured a second man before shooting himself.

The relationships and motivation for the shooting on the 5200 block of Venus Drive are still unclear, Fairfield police Officer Cleo Mayoral said. Police expect to release a more detailed timeline of events at the shooting, which appears to have started as a domestic dispute.

The fourth victim and 911 caller from the scene was treated and released Saturday from a local hospital after he suffered a gunshot wound to the ankle, Mayoral said.

The Solano County coroner's office has not released the names of the victims, Mayoral said.
