A second woman in a neighboring home was found with a gunshot wound to the leg. The relationship between the gunman and the two women is unknown at this time.

Police say 31-year-old Daniel Abetya also shot at propane tanks that were set up in the street. One of the tanks blew up when it was hit.

A bomb squad searched homes for an explosive device.

The gunman allegedly fired at officers at the scene. He was injured after police returned fire. Abetya is in critical condition.

Neighbors who know Abeyta say he is a military veteran and suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and is in a difficult marriage.

Police say they don't know the relationship between the alleged gunman and the two woman who were shot.
