“Obviously, these are not random shootings,” Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told KERO-TV. Six people died in a short amount of time, he added.  “The suspect, the husband, shot the person at the trucking company and then turned and shot his wife,” then chased and shot another man who showed up, Youngblood said.

The gunman then went to his home and shot two people there. After that he carjacked a woman who was driving with a child, who escaped but a sheriff’s deputy saw him and when he stopped him on gunpoint he shot himself.
