43-year-old Rick Smith also critically wounded a six-year-old girl, then carried her out of the home and handed her to a neighbor before fleeing.

 

Smith was tracked down less than three hours later, and was himself fatally shot in a gunfight with police.

 

The victims have been identified as 66-year-old Joanne Sinclair; her granddaughter, 23-year-old Brittany Luark; Luark’s boyfriend, James “Roy” Ralston; and two children, five-year-old Nolan Ralston and one-year-old Brantley Ralston.

 

State police say they’re investigating the exact relationship between Smith and the victims.
