Baldwin Park, Calif. (AP) An armed man is under arrest after a shooting in Baldwin Park, California that left two women and a 4-year-old girl dead. Two others were wounded.

A 911 caller reported a shooting in progress in the San Gabriel Valley residential area last night and police found an armed man standing in the street. He was detained and officers then found five gunshot victims.

Investigators say the man had apparently gotten into an argument with his mother and shot her to death before heading to a neighboring home where the other shootings occurred.

A 14-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl are hospitalized in critical condition.
