SALLISAW, Oklahoma (CNN) -- At least two people are dead and as many as six others injured -- including a 2-year-old girl -- after an 18-year-old man went on a shooting rampage in eastern Oklahoma after arguing with his neighbors Saturday, authorities said.

Kym Koch, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said the shooting started in Sallisaw around 4:30 p.m. (5:30 p.m. EDT) when the high school student shot and killed a female neighbor, wounded that neighbor's husband and wounded another neighbor.

She said the student has been in an argument with neighbors after they complained he was driving erratically in the neighborhood.

"He was obviously angry with his neighbors and exchanged words with them," Koch said.

The suspect then went to a car dealership in Sallisaw and shot a salesman and a customer. One of those victims died, Koch said.

Then, traveling east on Route 64, the gunman shot randomly at cars and hit two people shopping at a roadside stand, injuring both of them.

Koch said the suspect continued on and shot one person in Muldrow, Oklahoma, about 10 miles east of Sallisaw, and shot at -- but missed -- a Muldrow police officer.

Another few miles eastward, near Roland, Oklahoma, the gunman wrecked his car at a police roadblock and was taken into custody.

Koch said the suspect was taken to jail in Sallisaw.

"We're processing his vehicle and talking to the various victims if they are able to talk at this point," Koch said.

Sallisaw is about 30 miles from the state's border with Arkansas, and about 180 miles east of Oklahoma City.
