At least ten people have been killed in a shooting spree and car chase in the southern United States.
The gunman and his mother are believed to be among the dead. The killer, who was in his mid-30’s, killed five people including the wife of the local deputy sheriff and her 3 month old baby at a mobile home in the town of Samson, near Geneva in south eastern Alabama. The others died at a nearby convenience store and during a car chase as the man apparently fired at random. Officials say he died of self-inflicted wounds. They are expecting to find more victims and say there is no apparent motive for the attack.
