Later, the gunman killed two men at a residence before he hijacked a woman's car where the woman and her child escaped the vehicle. The sheriff's deputy saw him and confronted him, but he shot himself in the chest to death.

Lieutenant Mark King of the Kern County sheriff's office released a statement saying:

We have six deceased, one is the suspect and five are victims. We believe it's possibly a domestic violence incident.

The incident took place in around 10-15 minutes. Police received the first call at around 5:19 in the evening and they responded to the location. 

Around 30 people witnessed the shooting who were called to the County Sheriff's office for the interview
