A US army captain gunned down his ex-wife, mother-in-law and two other people in a shooting spree during Hurricane Irene before he turned the gun on himself, a justice official told AFP on Monday.

Captain Leonard Egland, who is understood to have served in Afghanistan and Iraq, started his rampage on Saturday evening right in the middle of the storm and ended it after a shootout with SWAT teams shortly before dawn Sunday.

Buckingham County district attorney David Heckler said it appeared that Egland committed a triple homicide in Virginia before crossing state lines and killing his estranged wife’s mother, following a recent child custody row.

The soldier, 37, had been the target of a manhunt after the shooting deaths of his 36-year-old former wife, her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s son at a house in Chesterfield, Virginia, as Irene swept up the east coast.
