Bakersfield shooting: Six dead as gunman opens fire in California rampage

Bakersfield shooting: Six dead as gunman opens fire in California rampage”

The Associated Press says the gunman took his own life as a sheriff's deputy got close.

The newspaper reports that it all started when the suspect went to a trucking business around 5:30 p.m. with his wife to confront another man.

The shooter killed his first victim after he arrived at a trucking business with his wife.

The husband then shot and killed a third victim, a man who confronted him at the scene, before fleeing and driving to a house nearby. The shooter commandeered a vehicle with a woman and a child inside.

The identities of the attacker and the victims have not been made public yet.

A deputy pulled him over on a highway and confronted the suspect with his gun drawn, Youngblood said.

Sheriff's interviewed more than 30 witnesses and have served five search warrants, according to the CBS affiliate KBAK-TV.

Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood briefs reporters Wednesday after six people died in a string of consecutive shootings. The woman and child escaped, the Californian reported.

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

Two men were shot at a residence in Bakersfield, Southern California.

Sheriff's deputies say six people are dead, including a gunman, after a string of shootings in Southeast Bakersfield.

"There was some type of situation that caused the husband to be extremely upset", he said. No names were released.

"Obviously, these are not random shootings", the sheriff said.
