Sheriff's officials in Tulare County say when deputies were called to trailer Saturday night on the Tule Indian Reservation, they found the body of a man and a woman inside. A third body was nearby.
Deputies also found a wounded male juvenile. His condition was not known.
Tulare County authorities did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press seeking details.
The Fresno Bee reports that a vehicle with the suspect - 31-year-old Hector Celaya - and his daughters, ages 5 and 8, was pulled over by deputies early Sunday.
The newspaper says Celaya was then wounded during an exchange of gunfire.
