A gunman killed one woman and wounded two other people Tuesday at a mushroom farm and then drove to a nearby high school, where he took his own life.
The killer, identified as Ignacio Vasquez Segura, 25, of Watsonville, shot three people at Monterey Mushrooms, located midway between Salinas and Watsonville. He then left the scene in a car and was chased by the California Highway Patrol to North Monterey County High School, where he shot himself in the car, Lt. Robert Baehr of the Monterey County Sheriff's Department said."He stopped at the entrance (to the high school), revved up his motor until he blew (it) and then shot himself," Baehr said.
Segura used a rifle during the rampage, Baehr said.
Investigators said that Segura was an employee of the mushroom farm and walked into a shed around 2 p.m. and started shooting.
