(Newser) – Shareef Allman, the suspect in a shooting spree at a California quarry yesterday that killed three and injured seven, has himself been shot and killed. Law enforcement sources confirm Allman's death to the San Jose Mercury News, which reports that a home in a Sunnyvale neighborhood where police had been searching for Allman has been cordoned off.

Sheriff's deputies were involved in Allman's shooting this morning around 7:20am, which reportedly happened after shots were fired in the neighborhood and residents called 911.
