CLINTON, Miss. (AP) - A relative of one of five people fatally shot at a Mississippi home says she can't comprehend why the man identified as the gunman would turn on his family and friends.
 
Authorities say 34-year-old Nam Le killed four people during a standoff with police Feb. 16. Nam Le also died later after being wounded by gunfire.
 
Vicki Van told news outlets she's an aunt of one of the victims, 28-year-old Dr. Phung Minh Le. His fiancee, 28-year-old Le Thi My Van, was also slain. Van says the other victims were Nam Lee's wife, 30-year-old Lan Thi My Van, and a family friend and babysitter, 65-year-old Cho Thi Van.
 
Vicki Van says Nam Le was well liked by customers at a nail salon he owned, and "something must have triggered him."
