A man killed five people during a shooting rampage in Bakersfield, California before ultimately turning the weapon on himself once he was cornered by a deputy, a report said.

The Associated Press says the gunman took his own life as a sheriff's deputy got close.

Six people are dead after a mass shooting at a trucking business and five other locations in Bakersfield, California.

The gunman fled the area, going to a nearby residence and fatally shooting two more people. He commandeered a vehicle before he killed himself when he was confronted by a sheriff's deputy, Youngblood said.

The shootings happened at a trucking business in Bakersfield, 90 miles north of Los Angeles, on Wednesday.

When another man showed up, the gunman began to give chase.

"The suspect killed himself", the sheriff said.

Authorities are interviewing 30 witnesses and processing multiple crime scenes to piece together what led up to the violence.

A deputy pulled him over on a highway and confronted the suspect with his gun drawn, Youngblood said.

He then hijacked a vehicle with a woman and child in it; they were able to escape safely.
