A man and his wife drove to a trucking business in the city, where the man shot dead two men and his wife.

Officials say the first shooting began at a trucking business in an industrial complex in East Bakersfield around 5 p.m. local time; police responded to calls at 5:19.

The suspect then went to another location on Breckenridge Road, where he shot two other people at a residence.

He then hijacked a auto but the woman and child inside the vehicle escaped. The woman and child made it out safely and were able to escape from the vehicle, Youngblood said. The suspect fired shots at this man, who fled.

When confronted, he turned the gun on himself and was instantly killed.

Investigators are trying to determine a motive for the shootings, which left five victims and the gunman dead.

Six people died in a short amount of time, he added.

Youngblood said the gunman then carjacked a woman who had a child in her vehicle. When the suspect pulled into a parking lot, the deputy confronted him at gunpoint.

Authorities are interviewing 30 witnesses and processing multiple crime scenes to piece together what led up to the violence. Officers gave chase and the suspect pulled into a business, got out of the auto and shot himself, King said.

Youngblood said he would consider it a mass shooting, saying that the string of shootings were "certainly" connected.

Referring to recent shootings across the country, Youngblood decried Wednesday's events as the "new normal". "Obviously there's some type of situation that caused the husband to be completely upset", he said.

Bakersfield is a community of 375,000 people about 115 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
