Five people were killed after a man opened fire at multiple places around Bakersfield, California. 

Kern County officials said the deadly spree became after the man and his wife got into a fight with another man at a trucking business.

The first man fatally shot the second, and then killed his wife as well. 

A third person was also killed at the trucking business.

The man then ran from the scene, going to another nearby residence and fatally shooting two more people. 

After that, he hijacked a car from a mother and her child.

Law enforcement eventually tracked the man down and at that point, the man turned the gun on himself and took his own life, officials said. 

The shooting is being described as a possible "domestic violence incident."

Dozens of witnesses are being interviewed in the spree and the investigation is ongoing.
