26 2017 shows crime scene tape stretched around the front of a home where a man was shot

Investigators are still trying to piece together how five victims of a mass shooting in Bakersfield are connected.

Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood talks to the media after a gunman killed five people in a shooting rampage.

The man then drove to another residence where he shot dead two more people.

As the deputy drew a weapon and confronted him, the gunman shot himself fatally in the stomach, Youngblood said. The gunman's motive and relationship to all the victims is now unclear.

The shooting started at a trucking company where the gunman shot a man and then his wife.

At a home in Bakersfield, Calif., where two people were shot and killed by a gunman during a shooting rampage which left a total of six people dead on September 12, 2018.

According to police, the gunman then hijacked a auto with a woman and child inside to try and make an escape.

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

The rampage took about 15 minutes, the authorities said.

The names of the gunman and the five people he's said to have killed weren't immediately available. The suspect then shot himself in the chest and died at the scene.

Youngblood said the shooting spree began about 5:20 p.m., when the unidentified suspect and his wife arrived together at a trucking business in an industrial complex in east Bakersfield.

Youngblood says it's not known if that was the catalyst for the violence. Thirty witnesses need to be interviewed, the sheriff said.

While there is no known motive at this time, Lt. Mark King of the Kern County Sheriff's Office says that police believe that the shooting was a case of domestic violence. Obviously, there was a kind of situation that caused the husband to be extremely upset.

He eventually pulled over on a highway after spotting a deputy.
