Official: 7 killed in two shootings in California community

Seven people were killed and a suspect was in custody Monday in two related shootings at a mushroom farm and a trucking firm in a coastal community south of San Francisco, officials said.

Dave Paine, chairman of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, says four people were killed on a farm and three in a trucking business on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, a city about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of San Francisco.

It was not immediately clear how the locations were connected.

California State Sen. Josh Baker, who represents the area, said people were killed in separate shootings. San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa tweeted that one of the shootings happened at a mushroom farm.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office tweeted just before 5 p.m. that a suspect was in custody.

Television footage from the area showed officers taking a man into custody without incident.

Aerial television images showed police officers collecting evidence from a farm with dozens of greenhouses.

Eleven people were killed in a late Saturday night shooting at a ballroom dance hall in Southern California.

“We are saddened by today’s tragedy in Half Moon Bay,” Dave Paine, chairman of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, said in a statement. “We don’t even have time to grieve for those killed in the horrific shooting in Monterey Park. Gun violence must stop.”
