The video was released hours after the five victims involved in the horrific mass shooting were identified.

Casarez, 54, who fired for the first time his ex-wife, Petra, 45, and Manuel Contreras, 50, in T & T Trucking at 5:17 pm with a Smith & Wesson 500.

Authorities later said Casarez and his wife recently divorced.

He may have forced his ex-wife to accompany him to a truck business before shooting her and other victims, authorities said Thursday.

The authorities also believe that Casarez planned the shootings in advance.

"The way this happened, it seemed like this was well planned," Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told ABC News.

Antonio Valadez, 50, saw the shooting unfold and was killed by Casarez while fleeing.

Then, the gunman went to the home of Laura Garcia, 32, and her father, Eliseo Cazares, 57, where he shot them both.

He then abducted a car of a woman and her baby, drove about a mile and committed suicide when the police approached her.

The anguished image of the body's camera shows him pointing his gun at his own chest and then firing while a policeman shouts at him to lower his gun.

It is not clear what motivated the murders and who the other victims are. The police say that none of the shots were random.

The fact that the gunman saved the woman and her baby after requisitioning her car tells investigators that he may have had a reason to shoot the people who did it, according to authorities.
