One person is dead and three are hurt after a domestic-related shooting south of Frederick, Md., according to the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said a 911 call was made from a home on Lysander Court. Screams were heard before the phone disconnected.

When officers arrived they heard gunshots and saw a red Kia leaving the scene, officials said. Officers followed the car at low speeds, and the car eventually crashed at Ballenger Creek Pike near Mountville Road, police said. The driver, John Ming Lee, 26, was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators do not know if he died as a result of the crash or of a gunshot wound.

Capt. Tim Clarke said the three injured people were flown Thursday morning to the University of Maryland Medical Center's shock trauma unit in Baltimore.  They were later identified as Jingmin Zheng, 58 (Lee's father); Amy Zheng, 18 (Lee's sister); and Siach Song, 50 (Lee's mother). 

The two women had gunshot wounds and were found in a bedroom and on the front porch.  The man was injured while jumping out of a second-story window.  He was found in the back yard.

The red Kia was towed to the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office Impound Lot. A long gun was removed from the vehicle for safety reasons.
