The suspect in this morning's shootings in Yuma has been identified as 73-year-old Carey Hal Dyess -- and he's dead.

Yuma police confirm earlier reports that after killing at least five people, Dyess killed himself.

Another victim was injured during the attack and airlifted to a Phoenix-area hospital, police say.

The shootings, Yuma Police spokesman Clint Norred says, are under investigation.

The shootings happened in different spots throughout the county and city of Yuma.

About 9 a.m., Yuma police responded to a call that woman had been shot at her home near Avenue 35-1/2E and Old Highway 80. She was found dead in her front yard.

About 20 minutes later, at 9:21 a.m., Yuma police responded to a shooting in the 300 block of 2nd Avenue in Yuma.

According to police scanner traffic picked up by the Yuma Sun, two more shootings were later reported near Wellton. That was followed by a report of a self-inflicted gunshot wound near Blaisdell off Highway 95.

One of those killed is reportedly an attorney identified by other local attorneys as Jerrold Shelley, although, Norred would not confirm the identity of the victims.

The shootings forced a lockdown -- which has since been lifted -- of a school and a court house.

Check back for updates.

More proof to never get married. Marriage is out dated anyway. 52% of people now days just live together. less people are married now than those that just live or shack up together. Cameron Diaz was correct as was I. Dont get married its a sham! just shack up together. hippies figured this out way back in the 1960s. the gays as usual havent caught on to this yet they still want to get married. why get married? 62% of the time it ends up in a nasty divorce anyway.

He was 73 years old? He was almost dead from old age anyway. typical cowards way out just like Gonzo Writer Hunter S Thompson.

I first thought that this was another "Jared Loughner" psycho-shooting spree. This is a 73 year old man who went on a killing rampage. The reasons for it, is still unknown. Could he be another loony with a gunny? Maybe J-King will tell us later........

The $64k question is who was killed and what relationship did each have with Dyess.

From Yuma Sun: "David Rodriguez, of the Wellton Police Department, added that the shootings were connected to a divorce gone bad." The one who was still alive was a friend of the ex-wife. So, I'm guessing the ex, her lawyer, and probably anyone else at hand who encouraged her to divorce him. I wonder whether he got shafted badly in the proceedings?

I'm guessing they were all on his bucket list: people to kill before he kicked the bucket.

"Divorce gone bad."

That's kind of like a train wreck gone bad, isn't it?
