Police said one person died and the condition of the others is stable.

No arrests were made and other details were not immediately released.

At least 19 shots were fired, according to a photo of shell casings that appeared in the East Bay Times.

The shootings came just hours after a gunman killed seven people at two locations on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay. San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus said officers arrested a suspect, Chunli Zhao, 67, after they found him in his car in the parking lot of a sheriff’s substation.

Half Moon Bay is 24 miles (38 kilometers) southwest of Oakland and about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of San Francisco.
