Man kills five people, himself in California shooting rampage: cops

Six killed, including gunman, in series of shootings in Bakersfield

The shootings began shortly before 5:30 pm on Wednesday in Bakersfield, about 90 miles north of Los Angeles.

Except for the gunman's wife, there was no immediate word on how the victims might have been related.

Six people - including the shooter - died yesterday in a mass shooting incident that started at a trucking company in Bakersfield, California.

He commandeered a vehicle before he killed himself when he was confronted by a sheriff's deputy.

The man then fled the area to Breckenridge Road where he confronted two people at a home and fatally shot them. The husband then fatally shot his wife, according to Youngblood.

He resisted deputies' repeated demands that he drop the weapon as the police sirens wailing in the background add to the tense moments.

Petra was the estranged wife of Cazarez, according to the sheriff, who said they were in the middle of divorce proceedings. There, Casarez confronted, shot and killed 50-year-old Manuel Contreras and Casarez's ex-wife, according to the sheriff. He told the woman something to the effect of "he wasn't a bad person", Youngblood said.

A Tesla spokesperson has since confirmed two color options are disappearing, but not until September 13. Tesla said cash from Model 3 sales will pay the bills and drive profits.

It was unclear what Casarez did for a living, but there may have been some connection between his family and the trucking business, Youngblood said.

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

The suspect then shot the man before turning and shooting his wife. He shot the man outside Bear Man Sports, a gun store.

T&T Trucking, where the initial shooting happened, said in a statement that the company "is in a state of mourning".

Authorities are interviewing 30 witnesses and processing multiple crime scenes to piece together what led up to the violence. The woman and child escaped, and Casarez drove to a highway where a sheriff's deputy saw him, Youngblood said.

"Obviously, these are not random shootings", said Youngblood, but could not elaborate on the possible motive of the attacker.
