SANTA CLARA, Calif. — A recently laid off high-tech employee opened fire Friday afternoon inside the Santa Clara office where he used to work, police said, killing the CEO and two others and sparking a massive manhunt that spread throughout the South Bay.

Santa Clara police identified Jing Hua Wu, 47, of Mountain View as the gunman who shot to death two men and one woman with a handgun before driving off in a silver SUV, thought to be a rented Mercury Mountaineer.
