CALIFORNIA, 24th January, 2023 (WAM/Reuters) – Seven people were killed in a mass shooting at two locations in the coastal northern California city of Half Moon Bay on Monday, CBS News reported.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office on Twitter reported a shooting incident with multiple victims and said a suspect was in custody.
Half Moon Bay is about 30 miles (50 km) south of San Francisco.
Investigators had peacefully taken a 67-year-old man into custody about two hours after the incident, as a deputy spotted the suspect’s car in a parking lot of a San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department substation, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, citing a sheriff’s department statement.
The weapon was found in his car, the report said.
Deputies responding to a call found four people dead and a fifth victim wounded at the first location in Half Moon Bay, then found three more dead at another place nearby, the Chronicle reported.
