Six people killed in Bakersfield shooting spree

At about 5 p.m., the gunman and his wife became involved in a confrontation with a man at a trucking business. The husband shot and killed the man and then shot and killed his wife.

Another person arrived at the scene. After a short foot chase, the gunman shot and killed that individual.

The gunman then started to flee the area and entered a nearby residence, where he shot and killed two more people.

Following the shooting at the home, the gunman carjacked a vehicle with a woman and child inside. The woman and child managed to escape.

The gunman then headed to a nearby highway, where he saw a deputy and pulled over. When the deputy confronted the gunman, the man turned his gun on himself and pulled the trigger.

Thus far, the motive for the shootings is unclear. The gunman’s relationship with most of the victims is also unknown.

Detectives are questioning about 30 witnesses in the case. Authorities have yet to release the names of the gunman and the victims.


Right, Jorge.

The State of California, and the multiple jurisdictions near the beach communities are NOT going to improve roads because those same roads COULD have a criminal coming down them.

What a chuckle that got out of every CalTrans employee in the area.

And “progressives” are not the ones pushing guns on the street, and less civility towards their neighbors. That sir, is a conservative trait. Conservatives have a strong instinct to blame others, have no sense of introspection, and to be 100% self-centered. It’s all about them.


The Valley is turning into Chicago….shootings almost daily…it won’t be long before it moves west….

Yes, we are improving the highway and building more to accommodate the wanted increase in tourism. When their temperature is over 95 the coast is where they go.


Definitely an extreme example of a WTF moment.

I like that better than the progressive movement as it is more accurate.


Progressive don’t believe everyone that wants a gun should get a gun. That’s a conservative point of view.

And this crime had nothing to do with a progressive or conservative agenda. It is all about ONE selfish, stupid jackass.
