Half Moon Bay: Seven killed at mushroom farm in California’s second mass shooting in three days

Seven people have been killed in two related shootings in Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco, in California. The incident marked the state's third mass killing in eight

days. Officers arrested a suspect, 67-year-old Chunli Zhao, after they found him in his vehicle in the car park of a sheriff's substation, San Mateo County Sheriff Christina

Corpus said. Four people were found dead and a fifth injured with gunshot wounds at a farm, and officers found three other people killed at another location several miles

away, the Sheriff's Office said. "Gun violence has come to our district today and I will do whatever I can to support the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department and Half Moon

Bay city officials during this tragic event," California state senator Josh Becker wrote on Twitter on Monday. "We will continue to monitor this situation. My thoughts go out to

all affected." The first incident took place at Mountain Mushroom Farm, while a second shooting took place at Rice Trucking-Soil Farm. The Sheriff's Office first

received reports of a shooting just before 2.30pm local time and found four people dead from gunshot wounds and a fifth person injured at the first scene. Shortly

afterwards, officers found three more people dead from gunshot wounds at a second location nearby, Captain Eamonn Allen said in a news release. About two hours after first

responding, a sheriff's deputy noticed the suspect, Zhao, in his car parked outside a sheriff's substation in a row of shops and arrested him, recognising the vehicle by its

licence plate.
