YUMA, Ariz. — A 73-year-old man shot and killed the attorney who represented his ex-wife in their divorce and four others in multiple locations in a rampage that rattled this border town.

He also wounded one person before being found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound roughly two hours after the first shots were fired. Police identified the shooter as Carey Hal Dyess of Yuma.

The timeline of events was not immediately clear, but police said they responded to the first call at about 9:30 a.m.

Prominent attorney Jerrold Shelley was found dead in his downtown law office, Police Chief Jerry Geier said.

Authorities say Dyess killed four other people elsewhere in Yuma County. An adult man and woman were found dead inside a house outside the town of Wellton, Yuma police said. It is unclear who the other victims were or where they were killed.
