4 dead in shooting spree

TUSTIN, Calif. -- A violent rampage that left four dead began in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday when a 20-year-old killed a woman in his southern California home and sped away in his parents' car, authorities said.

An hour later, it was over -- but not before Ali Syed had killed two more people during carjackings, shot up vehicles on a busy freeway interchange and left three others injured in a trail of carnage that stretched across 40 kilometres in suburban Orange County.

One driver was forced from his BMW at a stop sign, marched to a curb and shot in the back of the head as other commuters watched in horror. Syed later killed himself.

He lived with his parents at a residence where the first victim, an unidentified woman in her 20s, was slain, Tustin police Chief Scott Jordan said. He was unemployed, taking one class at a local community college, Jordan said.
