BELL, Fla. (AP) -- A sheriff says a man killed six of his grandchildren, his adult daughter and himself at a home in a small town in North Florida. Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz at a news conference identified the man as 51-year-old Don Spirit. He says the children ranged in age from 3 months to 10 years old. Schultz says a deputy who arrived on a report of a shooting Thursday made contact with Spirit who later committed suicide. He says Spirit is the only suspect and that some people were left alive at the home. A photo on the Gainesville Sun's website shows several police vehicles on a rural road. A sheriff's deputy was keeping people away behind police tape. Bell is a town of just 350 people about 30 miles west of Gainesville.
