A shooting rampage in Skagit County left six people dead, including a sheriff's deputy, the State Patrol said.

A suspect surrendered hours after the shootings. Authorities did not immediately identify him but said he was known to have mental problems.

The dead included a deputy who was shot while responding to a call and a second person killed at the same location, near the small town of Alger. Two construction workers were found dead nearby, and another body was found a few houses away, Trooper Keith Leary said.

A motorist was killed on Interstate 5 during an ensuing chase, and a trooper was wounded.

None of the victims' identities had been released.
