On October 27, 1996, in a typical fit of love gone sour, Paul Ely Jr. of Anchorage, Alaska, went hunting for his estranged wife leaving three dead and one wounded before killing himself.

The suspect first attacked a police officer who was responding to a domestic violence call. After wasting the cop in the hallway of the apartment building where his estranged wife and children lived, Ely shot his wife in the gut, ran to a neighbor's house with his two small children and killed them. Then, committed suicide.

Seely, 40, died about an hour after the shooting. Christina Ely, 27, was hospitalized and is in stable condition. "I had heard that they had just gotten divorced and I know they had been having problems for more than a year because the kids would come to the bus stop and talk about the parents fighting," said one of the neighbors.

At the time of the rampage Paul was not living with Christina and the kids.
