Shootings In Bakersfield, California Leave 6 Dead, Police Say

Donny Youngblood of the Kern County Sheriff's Department said deputies were called to the trucking business after reports of shots being fired at 17:20 local time (00:20 GMT).

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

He proceeded to run from the area and went to a nearby residence where he shot and killed two more people.

Deputies say somebody else then showed up and fired at the husband and was also shot and killed by him.

He won the US Open by denying Phil Mickelson and added precious gold when he won in golf's return to the Olympics in 2016. He is shown pointing to the sky to acknowledge his father, Ken, who died of leukemia in September 2002.


Officials provided no immediate details Thursday morning on what prompted the shootings Wednesday evening at a home and a trucking company in Bakersfield, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) north of Los Angeles.

When asked if this was a mass shooting, the sheriff said "absolutely".

Youngblood told reporters that 10 to 15 minutes elapsed from the first shooting until the gunman killed himself, KBAK-TV reports.

"Six people lost their lives in a short period of time", Youngblood said. "Obviously there's some type of situation that caused the husband to be extremely upset".

He then hijacked a auto but the woman and child inside the vehicle escaped. He took that vehicle and drove to Edison Highway, where a deputy saw him and confronted him.

The names of the victims or the gunman have not been released. "We are interviewing over 30 witnesses", he continued, adding that the man had used a large calibre handgun. Officers gave chase and the suspect pulled into a business, got out of the auto and shot himself, King said.

According to the AP, there is no word on how the other victims were related.
