7 killed,1 injured in Half Moon Bay, California



Police Officers on scene after taking Chunli Zhao into custody.

Seven people were killed and one injured after a gunman opened-fired at a mushroom farm and a nearby site, on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, California.
The authorities identified the suspected shooter as 66-year-old, Chunli Zhao, who was believed to be a worker at one of the targeted locations.
Officers found four people dead and one person wounded at the mushroom farm and moments later, found three more dead at a separate site two miles away.
It still remains unclear as to why Zao committed the mass shooting. Zao is expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon, San Mateo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Sean Gallagher said.
Zao, who authorities believe in having acted alone, was arrested two hours later in his vehicle at the parking lot of the Sheriff’s Office Half Moon Bay police substation, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. It still remains unclear why he was at the Sheriff’s Office parking lot.
The shooting came only 2 days after the mass shooting in Southern California, which left 11 people, who had gathered at a Los Angeles County dance hall, dead.
“For the second time in recent days, California communities are mourning the loss of loved ones in a senseless act of gun violence,” President Joe Biden said in a statement on Tuesday.
Biden further stated that he had directed his administration to ensure local authorities and the broader Half Moon Bay community have the full support of the federal government in the wake of this attack.
