Man kills 6 in US shooting rampage

Six people have been killed in the United States after a man went on a shooting rampage in a rural area north of Seattle.

Police say a sheriff's deputy was shot dead and the gunman then led officers on a car chase in which he killed five other people before turning himself in.

The victims were found dead at multiple shooting scenes, while two other people were wounded during the incident, including a state trooper.

The slain deputy was identified as 40-year-old Anne Jackson.

"We have multiple crime scenes with multiple victims. This incident is very large in scope," said an officer with the Everett police department.

State Department of Corrections officials identified the suspect as 28-year-old Isaac Zamora.

Zamora had served a six-month Skagit County jail sentence for drug possession.
