Seven killed in two shootings in California

HALF MOON BAY, California. Seven people were killed in two shootings Monday at a mushroom farm and trucking firm in a coastal community south of San Francisco.

San Mateo County Board of Supervisors President Dave Pine said four people died at the farm and three at the auto repair shop. It was not immediately clear how these places were connected.

California Senator Josh Becker, who represents the area, said people were killed in separate shootings on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, a city about 30 miles (48 km) south of San Francisco. San Mateo County Superintendent David Canepa tweeted that one shooting took place at a mushroom farm.

It was not immediately clear whether the shootings were related.

Shortly before 5 p.m., the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that the suspect was in custody.

“There is no threat to the public at this time,” the sheriff’s office said.

Television footage from the area showed the police detaining the man without incident.

Aerial television footage also showed police gathering evidence at a farm with dozens of greenhouses.

The shooting followed the killing of 11 people late Saturday night at a dance hall in Southern California.
