The shooting began around 7 p.m. Tuesday when a man was seen with a gun, firing off rounds starting in a Newcastle parking lot. The spree ended when he was shot and killed on Interstate 80 near the Highway 65 overpass. He drove a pickup truck through south Placer County, shooting at businesses, vehicles and homes in seven different areas, authorities said.

As he was driving down Rock Springs Road in Penryn, he shot and killed Toste at her door, officials said. Another person was shot while driving in Loomis and went to a fire station for treatment. A third person was shot at but was not hit, authorities said.

Stepanski fled onto Interstate 80 and was killed in a gunbattle with law enforcement after crashing into a center divide, officials said. The K-9 was shot in the flank during the standoff.
