The names of the gunman and the five people he's said to have killed weren't immediately available.

Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said Thursday that gunman's the estranged wife had recently filed for an unspecified change in orders involving child support and property.

At about 5:20 p.m. a man arrived at a trucking business behind Bear Mountain Sports with his wife.

He then shot both of them before turning the gun on someone who rushed to the scene, police said.

The gunman fled the area, going to a nearby residence and fatally shooting two more people.

Javier Casarez, 54, may have planned whom he was going to target in Wednesday evening's shooting spree, but his exact motive remains unclear, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told a news conference.

The husband then hijacked a vehicle with a woman and child inside on Fillmore Avenue in Bakersfield. "It was a very short period of time, maybe 10-15 minutes".

Youngblood told reporters that his department was interviewing about 30 bystanders who witnessed the shootings. He then chased another man and gunned him down too, Youngblood said.

Youngblood said it appears that Casarez targeted every victim, starting with a worker at T & T Trucking, and that domestic violence appears to have played a large part. The daughter may have tried to intervene, Youngblood said.

Bakersfield is about 90 miles north of Los Angeles. "Our entire community, with one heavy heart, is praying for the victims and their families".

It's not clear why the man went on the rampage, he said, but there may be a connection between the shooter and the victims - all described as adults.
