A man went on a shooting rampage in California on Wednesday, killing five people including his wife, before taking his own life.

The violence began about 5:20 p.m., when the man showed up to a trucking business with his wife and confronted another man, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told reporters.

Wednesday's incident happened when the man went with his wife to a trucking company in Bakersfield, California.

The husband then fatally shot his wife, according to Sheriff Youngblood.

Another person arrived on the scene and opened fire on the gunman. At that point, the man got out of the vehicle and shot himself in the chest.

He then carjacked a woman who was driving her child. "The suspect noticed the deputy pulled into the business, and then shot himself", said Lt King.

The motive and what the gunman's relationship was to the victims is unclear at this time.

Police say there are at least 30 witnesses, KRON reported.


"Obviously, these are not random shootings", Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told KERO-TV.

Deputies are now interviewing about 30 people who witnessed the string of shootings.

Youngblood said detectives believe the store is not connected to the spree.

"This is highly unusual to have six people shot and dead in one incident", Youngblood said.

The names of the victims or the gunman have not been released.

Sheriff's deputies are interviewing some 30 people who witnessed the shootings.

In all, five victims and one suspect are dead.
