An unidentified gunman shot and killed his wife and four other people in a series of shootings on Wednesday in Southern California before taking his own life, police said.

The man went with his wife to a trucking company in Bakersfield, California, where he shot and killed a man and then turned his gun on his spouse, killing her.

He then chased another man from the trucking company before he shot and killed him in front of a nearby sports store.

The gunman later killed two men at a residence. He then hijacked a vehicle from a woman and her child before he killed himself when he was confronted by a sheriff’s deputy. The entire incident took place over 10 to 15 minutes, police said.

“This is the new normal, if you look across the country,” Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said, describing it as a mass shooting.
