A quiet afternoon in Campbell turned chaotic in a matter of seconds Saturday afternoon when a man shot several of his family members.

The chaos started on 7th Street in Campbell shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday after a man came out of a second floor bathroom and opened fire on family members.

“Four family members were hit total and then at one point, the initial investigation lead us to believe that the suspect turned the gun on himself,” said Campbell Police Department Interim Chief A. W. Rauzan.

A chilling reminder of the shooting is still smeared on a neighbor’s door. ¬†Julie Hellman wasn’t home at the time of the incident but believes one of the victims ran to her house for help.

“When I seen the handprint, I already pretty much, that was my first thought, they came here looking for help,” said Hellman.

She knows the family very well. She said when she turned onto 7th Street and saw police cars and ambulances scattered around her block, she didn’t think something this bad had taken place.

“I was shocked. I was in disbelief. I couldn’t believe when the cops were telling me there’s something bad that happened and that people were shot. I couldn’t believe it,” said Hellman.

All four of the victims were in serious condition when transported to the hospital Saturday. On Sunday, family members who came to the house to clean up said one of the victims was in grave condition.

Police have not released the victims names but said they range in age from their 20’s to 60’s.

The suspect was also taken to the hospital and remains under police watch.
