A gunman shot two people in a Costco parking lot Monday afternoon in Southern California before turning his weapon on himself, police said, the second deadly shooting at one of the warehouse clubs in three days. 

The male suspect fired a handgun at his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend as they walked from the store to their car, Chula Vista Police Department Lt. Dan Peak said at a press conference

The suspect died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds about an hour after he opened fire. The man and woman are receiving hospital treatment for their injuries, Peak said. 

Monday's shooting occurred in the city of Chula Vista in San Diego County, about 100 miles from the site of Friday's shooting in Corona that killed one person. Corona Police are now reviewing video footage of the incident.

The shooting is under investigation, Peak said.
