The Frederick County Sheriff's Office said an autopsy confirms that an Adamstown, Md., man committed suicide after allegedly shooting his mother and sister.
Cpl. Jennifer Bailey announced the findings Friday in the death of 26-year-old John Ming Lee. She said Lee shot himself in the head in a car after fleeing the family's house Thursday morning.
Police believe Lee also shot his 50-year-old mother Siach Song in the back and wounded 18-year-old sister Amy Zheng with a shot that hit her lower arms and facial area.
Lee's father, 58-year-old Jingmin Zheng, was hurt jumping from a second-floor window.
All three are recovering at the University of Maryland Medical Center's Shock Trauma unit in Baltimore.
