MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Penn. — Five people are dead after shootings in three communities in a county near Philadelphia in what a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says was a domestic dispute.

The gunman shot and killed his wife and then shot and killed other members of his family at a different location Monday morning, the official said.

A suspect is barricaded at a home in Souderton, the law enforcement official said.
