He then chased another man from the trucking company before he shot and killed him in front of a nearby sports store.

The gunman later killed two men at a residence. He then commandeered a vehicle from a woman and her child before he killed himself when he was confronted by a sheriff’s deputy, Youngblood said.
He added that the entire incident took place in 10 to 15 minutes, describing the incident as a mass shooting.

“This is the new normal if you look across the country. Six people lost their lives in a very short period of time,” Youngblood said.

However, Authorities are yet to confirm the reason for the shooting,
Youngblood said,
“why this started and why so many players were involved and the connection because obviously, these are not random shootings”.

He did not disclose the identities of the victims and added that the woman whose vehicle was taken, and her child, were unharmed.

Police recovered a pistol at the scene. Authorities were interviewing about 30 witnesses.
