FALL RIVER — The Fall River man authorities believe shot and killed his fiancée's father and injured two other family members before fatally shooting himself early Wednesday has been identified as 25-year-old Christopher Jean Baptiste.

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office said police received a 911 call at 3:05 a.m. on Dec. 7 from Jean Baptiste's fiancée, stating that he had just shot members of her family and then himself at their 511 Bank St. home.

First responders arrived to find four shooting victims. The fiancée's father, 69-year-old Hubert Labasquin, was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Two other family members were also injured in the attack.

The D.A.'s office said the fiancée’s mother, a 59-year-old woman, was rushed to Saint Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford with a gunshot wound, but is expected to survive.

The woman's 25-year-old sister is also expected to survive after being taken to St. Luke's for treatment of her injury.

Jean Baptiste was taken to Saint Anne’s Hospital in Fall River, where he was later pronounced dead.

The D.A.'s office said a preliminary investigation indicates the fiancée's family had been living with the couple at Jean Baptiste's home on Bank Street for several months while searching for a place to live.

Last night, Jean Baptiste allegedly told his fiancée that he was unhappy with her family continuing to live there, according to the office.

Later that night, the D.A.'s office said he allegedly held up a gun — for which he had a valid license — and told his fiancée that her family had to leave immediately.

Labasquin then apparently struggled with Jean Baptiste, who allegedly shot him.

According to the D.A.'s office, while the fiancée was calling 911, Jean Baptiste allegedly shot her mother and sister before turning the gun on himself.

Prosecutors, state police, and Fall River police continue to actively investigate the shooting.
