The man who fatally shot three family members, a neighbor and then himself in rural Washington state had an extensive criminal history, including felony charges.

A review of Pennsylvania court records shows misdemeanor and felony convictions for David Wayne Campbell dating to 1996. Documents say he was charged with multiple counts over several years, mostly related to bad checks, stolen property and forgery.

He served time in prison starting in 2000 on a charge of theft by deception. It’s not clear when he moved to Washington.

Campbell killed himself Friday after a standoff with authorities. He also killed his wife, her two teenage sons and a neighbor.
