A sheriff says a man killed six of his grandchildren, his adult daughter and himself at a home in a small town in North Florida.

Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz at a news conference identified the man as 51-year-old Don Spirit. He says the children ranged in age from 3 months to 10 years old.

Schultz says a deputy who arrived on a report of a shooting Thursday made contact with Spirit who later committed suicide.

He says Spirit is the only suspect and that some people were left alive at the home.
