The man suspected of opening fire at a Northern California limestone quarry, killing three co-workers and injuring six was shot by authorities Thursday in a Silicon Valley neighborhood after a daylong manhunt.

Three Santa Clara County Sheriff deputies were on routine patrol in a Sunnyvale, California neighborhood Thursday morning, when they discovered a man crouched behind a vehicle in the driveway of a home. The man, matching Allman’s description, displayed a handgun, and deputies responded by opening fire and killing the him.

Police are awaiting confirmation from the coroner that the man is Shareef Allman, of San Jose, who opened fire Wednesday morning at Permanente Quarry in Cupertino. Three people died and six were injured. Another woman was wounded in the leg at Hewlett Packard’s campus at a later time during an attempted carjacking.
