Frederick County authorities are identifying the victims of a fatal domestic disturbance near Adamstown.

Sheriff's Cpl. Jennifer Bailey says investigators believe 26-year-old John Ming Lee, armed with a rifle or shotgun, wounded his mother and sister before apparently shooting himself in the head.

She says Lee was found dead in a car with the gun after a slow-speed chase. Police were responding to a 911 hang-up call made shortly before 5 a.m.

Lee's 50-year-old mother Siach Song and 18-year-old sister Amy Zheng (cheng) were both shot. Father Jingmin Zheng (cheng) was hurt when he jumped from a second-floor window.

Bailey says all three are being treated at the University of Maryland Medical Center Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
