LOS ANGELES (AFP) - A gunman killed three people in California on Tuesday, including at least one execution-style, in a series of carjackings before taking his own life, police said.
At least two other people were injured as the gunman fired randomly on other vehicles while driving a stolen car on the freeway, before he shot and killed himself in the city of Orange, south of Los Angeles.
The first killing appeared to be a woman found dead in her home in Ladera Ranch, after neighbors reported hearing gunfire in the early hours. The suspect, a man in his 20s, then fled in an SUV.
"Multiple incidents" then occurred as the man drove to nearby Tustin, about 56km south-east of Los Angeles, said Tustin police department spokesman Paul Garaven.
