Authorities say a gunman in California has killed five people, including his wife, before turning the gun on himself as a sheriff's deputy closed in.

Six people were killed in Bakersfield, California Wednesday night in what Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood described as a mass shooting.

There's no immediate word on how or if the victims were related.

The husband then went to another location on Breckenridge Road where he confronted two males at a residence and shot them.

But the gunman eventually tracked him down and killed him near Bear Mountain Sports, which is close to the trucking business.

He then carjacked a woman who was driving with her child. The gunman shot himself as at least one law enforcer approached him, Youngblood said.

Boateng called Mourinho to turn down Man United
Jerome Boateng says he phoned Jose Mourinho to personally explain his decision to reject the chance to join Manchester United over the summer.

Youngblood did not disclose the identities of the victims. The woman and child escaped and the man drove to a highway where a sheriff's deputy saw him, Youngblood said.

Six people are dead after a series of shootings that occurred in a span of 15 minutes in Bakersfield, according to the Kern County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said it could take days to interview all witnesses and gather evidence from the multiple crime scenes. The confrontation was captured on the deputy's body camera. "This is highly unusual".

"Obviously, these are not random shootings", said Youngblood, while denouncing the fact that such mass shooting were "the new normal".

In all, five victims and one suspect are dead.
