Police arrested the suspect in an hours-long deadly crime spree in Northern California that left three people dead and another three injured, the Washington Examiner reported.
According to ABC News, the suspect, Kevin Parkourana, 31, of San Jose, was apprehended shortly after the attacks that began last Thursday afternoon in San Jose and ended with a deadly stabbing in nearby Milpitas.
The rampage began around 3:00 pm in San Jose when Parkourana stabbed a driver and carjacked the vehicle. According to San Jose police, the victim was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The suspect then drove the stolen vehicle to a shopping center where he attempted to carjack a second vehicle, stabbing the driver. The second victim is also hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
As he attempted to drive away in the second vehicle, Parkourana allegedly struck a pedestrian in the parking lot. The pedestrian was wounded, but the injuries were not life-threatening.
Parkourana was later spotted at an intersection where he intentionally slammed into two pedestrians, killing them both.
At about 4:30 pm, police in nearby Milpitas were called to the scene of a homicide at the parking lot of a shopping center in which the victim was stabbed to death. Milpitas and San Jose police quickly compared details and informed the public that the cases could be related.
According to CBS News, Parkourana was arrested shortly after the stabbing in Milpitas.
San Jose Police Chief Anthony Meta told reporters that the 31-year-old suspect had a criminal history and is known to law enforcement. He said while the victims were targeted at random, the crimes were intentional.
CBS News reported that Parkourana has a history of assault convictions and was on probation at the time of last week’s rampage.
Parkourana is being held in the Santa Clara County Jail.
