Man, 73, kills five in Arizona gun rampage

An elderly man opened fire in an Arizona town yesterday, killing five people and wounding one other, before killing himself.

Police in Yuma responded to the first emergency call at about 9:30am and found the 73-year-old suspect dead two hours later.

He was later identified by police as Carey Hal Dyess and is said to have been acquainted with all of his victims.

Yuma Mayor Al Krieger said: "It's one of those things where someone went and did something very, very foolish. I'm sorry for the loss of life."
