A shooting rampage left four people dead and at least two people wounded in California on Monday.
Orange County Sheriff’s Department Jim Amormino told the Orange Country Register that a man went on a shooting spree that began with the death of a person at a home in Red Leaf at about 5:20 a.m.
The suspect then fled in a SUV and shot a person, who was not fatally wounded, while trying to steal a car the area Red Hill Avenue in Tustin. Reports indicated that a driver was shot and killed near Village Way and the 55 freeway during a second carjacking.
In the process of stealing another car in near Edinger and Newport Avenue, the shooter killed a person and a second person was injured.
Police eventually located the suspected shooter driving on the 55 freeway.
That’s when “the suspect shot and killed himself,” according to Tustin Police Department Lt. Paul Garaven said.
