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

More than 30 people were reportedly interviewed during the initial investigation, and five search warrants were served. At that point, the man got out of the vehicle and shot himself in the chest. "Six people lost their lives in a very short period of time", Youngblood said. Authorities say that a husband and wife had a confrontation with a man at the business when the husband shot and killed him.

"There was some type of situation that caused the husband to be extremely upset", Kern County Sheriff said.

When a third man showed up, the gunman chased him to the nearby Bear Mountain Sports shop and fatally shot him.

According to Sheriff Donny Youngblood, he shot a man inside the scope before turning the gun on his wife, killing her instantly.

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

According to the sheriff, the gunman used at least a single handgun, though he does not know yet if he had other weapons at his disposal. The child and woman were not killed. However, authorities said they are still investigating the specific motive for the mass shooting.
