A Florence man has been identified as a suspect in a northern California shooting spree that killed a 93-year-old woman.

CBS 13 in Sacramento reports that 48-year-old Stanley Stepanski gunned down the woman in Placer County Tuesday night.

Investigators have said there is no relationship between the gunman and victim.

Investigators believe Stepanski was responsible for seven crime scenes before being shot and killed by authorities.

A man was shot while driving his truck and another person was shot in Loomis. Both are said to have non-life-threatening injuries.

In 2017, Stepanski was arrested on a felony charge of assault with a weapon in Ravalli County in western Montana after he allegedly became angry that his mother didn’t give him $400.
