TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - An autopsy shows that a man was intoxicated when he shot his wife and children and set their house on fire before killing himself in a $1.6 million Tampa home belonging to retired tennis player James Blake.

The Tampa Tribune (https://bit.ly/1lNBzTu ) reports Darrin Campbell had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 at the time of his death. Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies believe 49-year-old Campbell shot his 51-year-old wife Kimberly and children - 18-year-old Collin and 16-year-old Megan - on May 7.

Autopsy reports show his wife and children were each shot once in the head. There was no soot in their airways, indicating they died before Campbell set fire to the home.

Authorities say Campbell bought a .40-caliber handgun and $600 in fireworks in the weeks before the shootings.
