We just got word that 3 people are dead after a shooting in Grand Rapids.

Police say a 27-year-old man shot two women inside a minivan and then killed himself.

A preliminary report showed that the man was seated behind the women when they were shot and a handgun has been found.

The van was parked outside the Arbor Circle Counseling Center. The group just finished a session at the center.

The man had a relationship with one of the women and also had a child together.

Kansas Police Officers Fatally Shot

TOPEKA, Kan. — Authorities have identified the gunman who killed two Topeka police officers as a 22-year-old man who records show had a criminal record.

During a news conference Monday, authorities said the shooter was David Tiscareno (tihs-'CUH-ree-noh). Officers later shot him.

Online court records show Tiscareno was convicted previously of theft of less than $1,000 and a weapons violation. He was sentenced to probation both times.

Authorities said officers were investigating a report of a possible drug deal in a grocery store parking lot Sunday night when Tiscareno opened fire, killing two officers.

Tiscareno fled. He was killed early Monday after authorities fired tear gas inside the home where he was holed up. The Shawnee County sheriff's office says officers opened fire when the man emerged from the home with a gun.

And it's still Monday afternoon.
