LITTLE EGG HARBOR - Police in Little Egg Harbor say a gunman killed his brother, a good Samaritan and himself.

Authorities said there was no obvious motive for the shootings yesterday morning near the corner of Radio Road and Westchester Drive in the Tall Timbers apartment complex.

Police say 45-year-old Craig Mueller shot and killed 52-year-old Bryan Mueller from a second-floor window in the home they shared.

They say he also killed 21-year-old Cara Ellis after she ran to the brother's aid.

Authorities say they found Craig Mueller dead in a second-floor room about four hours later in an apparent suicide.

Officials placed Little Egg Harbor schools into lockdown while authorities located the gunman.
