‘This has to stop’: Californians react to Bakersfield shooting that killed 6

‘This has to stop’: Californians react to Bakersfield shooting that killed 6

Five people including the gunman's wife were killed after the unidentified man and his wife showed up at a trucking company, the news service reports, after which the man drew a gun and shot one victim before turning the gun on his wife.

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

Apparently, a husband and wife showed up at the business and confronted somebody there and the husband shot and killed that person.

Then the gunman confronted two more people at a different location, he said.

Authorities say a husband and wife had a confrontation with a man at the business when the husband shot and killed him.

Casarez pulled out a.50-caliber handgun, a large weapon, and shot an employee, then fatally shot his wife, Youngblood said.

"Then I saw a guy with a gun, shooting", said the witness, who declined to be identified.

Investigators aren't sure about a motive, but it appears the former couple had some type of connection to the trucking company, and the shootings appeared well-planned, Youngblood said.

Afterwards, Cazares drove to a home less than two miles away on Breckenridge Road and fatally shot Eliseo Cazares, and his daughter, Laura Garcia, according to investigators.

Police say that none of the shootings were random.

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

He left the home and then hijacked a nearby vehicle with a woman and child inside at Fillmore Avenue.

Casarez, 54, who first shot his ex-wife, Petra, 45, and 50-year-old Manuel Contreras at T&T Trucking at 5.17pm using a Smith & Wesson 500. The woman and child escaped, and Casarez drove to a highway where a sheriff's deputy saw him, Youngblood said.

The gunman got in his vehicle, followed Valadez to the nearby Bear Mountain Sports shop and fatally shot him, authorities said.

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

Deputies are now interviewing about 30 people who witnessed the string of shootings.
