Man Kills Ex-Wife, Four Others Before Committing Suicide In NY  

New York (September 14, 2018): A gunman has killed his former wife and four others before killing himself near Bakersfield, California on Thursday.

The gunman and his ex-wife had been divorced four months, and she had just filed for a new hearing regarding child support and property values, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said.The gunman killed two females and three males in three locations in a span of 30 to 35 minutes, he said. Earlier, authorities said the gunman had killed one female and four males.The shooting spree started at T&T Trucking, where the gunman — after arriving there with his ex-wife — shot her and a man, Youngblood said.

Investigators aren’t fully 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.“It appears to be there’s more than just a husband and wife having a fight, because other people were targeted. There’s a reason for that, and we need to find that reason,” the sheriff said.The shootings began just after 5 p.m. when the man and his wife went to a trucking business east of Bakersfield, Youngblood said.

At the business, the husband confronted a man and fatally shot him — and then “turned and shot his wife,” who later died, the sheriff said.

Another male arrived, and after a short foot chase, the gunman shot and killed that person outside the nearby Bear Mountain Sports, a hunting equipment shop, Youngblood said.

The gunman then went to a nearby residence, where he shot and killed two more males, according to the sheriff.

He then hijacked a vehicle with a woman and child inside, but they were able to escape. The gunman headed to a nearby highway, where he saw a deputy and pulled over into a lot.

As the deputy drew a weapon and confronted him, “the suspect put the gun to his (own) chest and killed himself,” Youngblood said.
