A gunman has shot and killed five people before turning the gun on himself in southern California.

The shooter then went to a house on Breckenridge Road, where he opened fire on two other men.

According to police, a husband and wife had a confrontation with a man at the business when the husband shot and killed him.

The shootings happened at a trucking business in Bakersfield, 90 miles north of Los Angeles, on Wednesday.

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

"This is the new normal, if you look across the country", Youngblood said, describing the incident as a mass shooting.

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

Six people died in a short amount of time, he added. He took that vehicle and drove to Edison Highway, where a deputy saw him and confronted him.


Youngblood said the unidentified gunman entered the business at about 5:30 p.m. local time and confronted another male near the business.

"Where we go from here is try to figure out why this started and why there are so many players involved in the connection, because obviously these are not random shootings", Youngblood said.

Except for the gunman's wife, officials provided no details on how the victims might have been related.

The dead include five victims and a suspect, the sheriff told the Bakersfield Californian.

He then carjacked a woman who was driving with her child.

Another man who was at the scene then tried to run from the suspect.

The husband pulled his gun and then shot the man, police said.
