California shootings: Six dead in Bakersfield

Crime scene

Sheriff Donny Youngblood told reporters that the suspect first shot a man at the trucking company and then killed his wife.

Six people are dead - including the suspected shooter - after a man opened fire at multiple locations in Bakersfield, California on Wednesday, according to police.

A deputy eventually confronted the suspect in a parking lot, at which point the gunman shot himself in the chest, Sheriff Youngblood said.

Bakersfield is about 90 miles north of Los Angeles.

When a third man showed up, the gunman chased him to the nearby Bear Mountain Sports shop and fatally shot him.

Youngblood said he would consider it a mass shooting, saying that the string of shootings were "certainly" connected.

Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood talks to the media after a gunman killed five people in a shooting rampage.

Six people died in a short amount of time, he added. "Obviously there's some type of situation that caused the husband to be completely upset", he said.

Police said a sheriff's deputy spotted the vehicle a short time later on a nearby highway.

The man then hijacked a auto with a woman and a child inside in Fillmore, which is about 100 miles from Bakersfield. The deputy who confronted the man was wearing a body camera. The identities of the attacker and the victims have not been made public yet.

He then headed to a nearby highway where he saw a deputy and pulled over. "We are interviewing over 30 witnesses", he continued, adding that the man had used a large calibre handgun. According to AP, except for the gunman's wife, there was no immediate word on how the victims might have been related.
