A man killed his mother, stepfather, son, and the 4-year-old son of an ex-girlfriend in a shooting spree Saturday before killing himself, Texas authorities said.

Three others were injured in the shootings at two locations in Navarro County, authorities said.

Just after midnight, dispatchers got a call 911 saying a man had killed his family members at a home in Corsicana, 55 miles southeast of Dallas, Corsicana Police Chief Robert Johnson, said in a statement.

Officers found the suspect's mother, Connie Mimms, 61, and his stepfather, William Mimms, 68, dead of gunshot wounds, Johnson said. Two other people who had been shot were taken to a Dallas-area trauma center, he said.

Navarro County sheriff's deputies went to another location in Frost, about 20 miles west, where they found a man and a child fatally shot, Johnson said. A third victim had been shot multiple times and was hospitalized, officials said.

Corsicana police identified those victims as the suspect's son, 21-year-old Joshua Milazzo, and 4-year-old Hunter Freeman, the child of an ex-girlfriend.

Corsicana police and Navarro County deputies zeroed in on the suspect traveling by vehicle and tracked his location from its navigation system, Johnson said.

Police requested that the vehicle's monitoring service remotely disable it and the vehicle came to a stop on a farm-to-market road outside Corsicana. Police SWAT officers approached and found the suspect alone in the vehicle with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Johnson said.

The suspect, identified Saturday night Kevin Milazzo, 41, was pronounced dead at a hospital, police said.

The conditions of the three wounded people were not available.

The violence and any possible motive remained under investigation, Johnson said.
