Four people were killed and another wounded in a shooting at a home in Utah on Friday night, with the suspect taken into custody, police and media reported.
The attack took place in the small town of Grantsville, on the outskirts of state capital Salt Lake City.
"Officers arrived, they did clear the residence and were able to locate the four deceased," said Grantsville police officer Rhonda Fields.
Fields said police were working to notify relatives and the fifth victim was being treated in hospital.
She did not confirm media reports that the attacker and victims were all from the same family.
"Our hearts are broken by the horrible news coming out Grantsville tonight. We mourn over the loss of innocent lives," Utah Governor Gary Herbert said on Twitter.
The officers were released from area hospitals Tuesday afternoon and are recovering, Hwang said. A 30-year-old corporal was shot in the arm and chest, and Hwang said the officer’s ballistic vest likely saved his life.
It was the third shooting in the area in less than two days, and the latest incident of gun violence that has affected churches, cinemas and other public places in the United States.
The shooting in the town of Poway, north of San Diego, came exactly six months after a white supremacist killed 11 people at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue — the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in US history.

The victim was stabbed several times. An autopsy is being carried out on the body for further investigation.
