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.

Five people were shot dead by a gunman in Southern California late Wednesday in an attack that police say began as a domestic disturbance.

After hijacking a vehicle with a woman and child in it, the man was then confronted by a deputy and shot himself dead.

The identities or a motive have not yet been revealed for the shootings in Bakersfield, 90 miles north of Los Angeles.

But the gunman eventually tracked him down and killed him near Bear Mountain Sports, which is close to the trucking business. "This is the new normal", the sheriff said of the mass shooting.

All the shootings occurred in unincorporated Bakersfield so they were handled by the Kern County Sheriff's Office.

"Six people lost their lives in a short period of time", Youngblood said.

"Where we go from here is try to figure out why this started and why there are so many players involved in the connection, because obviously these are not random shootings", Youngblood said.

The investigation could take days, he said, because there are at least 30 witnesses who need to be interviewed. The woman and child escaped and the man drove to a highway where a sheriff's deputy saw him, Youngblood said. The body camera video from the officer who confronted the shooter also needs to be examined.

Except for the gunman's wife, there was no immediate word on how the victims might have been related.

The man pulled over after a deputy confronted him with a firearm and then shot himself dead.
