The first man fatally shot the second, and then killed his wife as well. "The suspect noticed the deputy pulled into the business, and then shot himself", said Lt King.

The gunman then fled the scene, stopping at a nearby house - where he shot and killed two more men.

Casarez then commandeered a vehicle from a woman, taking the auto without harming her or a child who was with her, Youngblood said. Casarez told the woman he wasn't a 'bad person' and let her and the child out of the vehicle before he drove to Edison Highway, where he was spotted by a deputy, officials said.

The man then drove to Edison Highway where he was confronted by a deputy.

Five people were killed after a man opened fire at multiple places around Bakersfield, California.

The video was released hours after the five victims involved in the horrifying mass shooting were identified.

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

Hugo Lloris fined £50,000 after admitting drink-driving
Lloris , of East Finchley, spent a night in a cell at Charing Cross police station after failing a breath test in Marylebone. Lloris , who had been at a restaurant that night, was swerving towards parked cars and had to be helped out of his vehicle.

Investigators are questioning about 30 witnesses in this case.

It is as yet unclear how all the victims are connected to Casarez, authorities said. He also shot at an employee of the trucking company who walked in on the altercation.

Cazares got into his vehicle and chased Contreras, killing him a short distance away at Bear Mountain Sports, Youngblood said.

He said Casarez was a legal permanent resident of the U.S. The 50-caliber gun used in the shootings was legally purchased in 2004, Youngblood said. Except for the gunman's wife, officials provided no details on how the victims might have been related.

The gunman then went to his home, where he shot another man and that man's daughter. Bunting said Thursday that Laura Garcia was a mother of four and her father was a self-employed truck driver who always was with his grandkids when not working.

"It's very unusual to have six people killed in one incident", NBC quoted him as saying.

"We need to find out where this started...obviously these are not random shootings".
