LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities detained several people after a gunman shot and killed a man during an attempted carjacking and then injured another driver in a crash after stealing a second vehicle in Southern California.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Aura Sierra says the deadly rampage Sunday began in Long Beach when a man behind the wheel of a red Lexus fired several shots skyward in a fit of road rage.

Sierra says nobody was injured at that time, but the man then drove to an apartment complex, where he shot and killed a man while trying to steal his car. The victim of the shooting was not identified.

The Los Angeles Times reports deputies tracked at least one stolen car to a home in Compton, where several people were detained.

It's unclear if the shooting suspect was taken into custody.
