Three hostages, gunman dead at veterans treatment center

A gunman in a standoff at a Northern California military veterans home — ending with the deaths Friday of three women who worked for a counseling program — had previously threatened one of the women, two law enforcement sources said.

Police officers Friday evening stormed the room where Albert Wong had taken the hostages at the Veterans Home of California in Yountville eight hours earlier, and found the hostages and the gunman dead, authorities said.
