Morgantown - Police say a towing company owner killed his ex-girlfriend, two men she was having a relationship with and the owner of a rival tow truck firm.

Police say the shooter, Jody Lee Hunt, killed himself after about a 12-hour manhunt on Monday. State Police Lieutenant Michael Baylous and Monongalia County Sheriff Kenneth "Al" Kisner on Tuesday revealed the motive for the rampage during a radio interview on West Virginia MetroNews.

Police say the shootings started on Monday morning when the owner of a rival tow truck company, Doug Brady, was gunned down at his business. Hunt then killed his ex-girlfriend Sharon Kay Berkshire and Michael David Frum, who were together at a house, before he went to another home and killed Jody Taylor.

Hunt was found dead on Monday night in a truck.
