DOUGLASVILLE, Georgia (AP) -- A gunman has shot seven people, killing five of them, in a subdivision west of Atlanta.

Douglas County Sheriff's Lt. Glenn Daniel said authorities received an emergency call Saturday reporting a shooting in Douglasville around 3 p.m.

Daniel said five people were killed, including several children.

The gunman was among those hurt. He was taken to a hospital.

Investigators have not released the names of the suspect or the victims because their family members have not yet been notified. The motive for the shooting was not immediately clear.
