FAIRFIELD, CA - Three people are dead after a shooting in a home at 5245 Venus Drive in Fairfield Saturday afternoon.

All five residents, including the alleged shooter, were home during the shooting, said Fairfield police.

Jason Isenberg, 37, allegedly shot and killed his 27-year-old ex-girlfriend and her friend. Isenberg reportedly shot his father's 28-year-old live-in caretaker in the ankle.

Police said Isenberg then shot himself. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Isenberg's father, Mark Isenberg, was able to leave the home uninjured and go to a neighbor's for help. The caretaker barricaded himself in a room and called police.

As police came into the neighborhood, the neighbor who helped Mark Isenberg tried to flag the officers down. Police tased the neighbor as he approached them because he seemed aggressive, said Fairfield police.

When police arrived on at the home, they had to force their way in through a window because the door was locked. Police found the two bodies upstairs.

Police were also able to recover the weapon used in the shootings.

Since last summer, police have received multiple service calls to the home. Last night, police received a call about a disturbance caused by legal dispute.

Mark Isenberg said his son was upset about the dispute and was most likely the motive behind the shootings.
