BELFAIR, Wash. (AP) - The Latest on a shooting that left five dead in Washington state:

A coroner in Washington state has released the identity of a gunman and three of his four victims in what authorities described as a mass shooting and suicide.

The Kitsap Sun newspaper reports that 51-year-old David Wayne Campbell shot and killed his wife, 49-year-old Lana J. Carlson, as well as her children Quinn and Tory Carlson, who were 16 and 18, respectively.

The Mason County coroner on Saturday was withholding the identity of a fourth victim pending notification of relatives.

The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said Campbell called authorities Friday morning to report that he had shot four people at a home near Belfair, southwest of Seattle. A SWAT team negotiated with him for more than three hours before he came outside and killed himself.

A 12-year-old girl was able to escape the house and survive.
