Gunman opens fire on Saipan; 5 dead
Officials say a gunman opened fire on the Pacific resort island of Saipan, killing four people before fatally shooting himself, AP reported.
Public Safety spokesman Jason Tarkong says among those killed in Friday's rampage are a 4-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl.
At least five people were wounded.
Tarkong says the shooter is a contract worker in his 30s or 40s from Asia.
Officials say the shootings occurred in two different areas of the island, starting with a popular tourist spot where the gunman fired a barrage of bullets from his van at visitors from South Korea. A 39-year-old man was critically injured.
The suspect then drove to a shooting range where he killed two men and the two children.
