CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Three people are dead after a violent shooting spree Sunday evening in Cape Coral. Police in Cape Coral say a gunman shot three people in two different locations before being shot and killed by responding officers.

It started before 6pm on Skyline Boulevard near Veterans Parkway in front of the Home Depot when a gunman shot and killed a motorcyclist in the roadway.  Police say the motorcyclist died on the scene.  That scene is now clear and the roadway is open.

Police believe the gunman then traveled to the Circle K at Chiquita Boulevard and Cape Coral Parkway where another person was shot and killed.  Another person at that location was also shot, but suffered non-life threatening injuries.

After leaving the second scene, Police say they located the gunman just minutes later near the intersection of Skyline Boulevard and Cape Coral Parkway.  When officers tried to stop the vehicle, the driver violently resisted.  Witnesses tell Fox 4 they heard nearly thirty shots fired.  

Police say they killed the gunman during the exchange, and there were two passengers found inside the gunman's vehicle.  They were also wounded and taken to a local hospital.  It is not clear who shot those two subjects.  No police officers were wounded during the gunfire.  No details have been provided about the conditions of the two wounded passengers in the vehicle.  

Police have not released the names of any of the people involved in the incidents, and have not released information about a possible motive for the shootings.  

Police did indicate this is still an active investigation and more warrants may be issued in the case and implied there may be additional scenes to process.

More details are expected Monday morning as officers continue to investigate.

Fox 4 will continue to bring you the latest details as we get them.
