HALF MOON BAY, Calif. (AP) — Seven people were killed in two related shootings at a mushroom farm and a trucking company in a coastal community south of San Francisco on Monday, and one suspect was in custody, officials said.
Dave Pine, president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, said four people were killed at the farm and three at the truck shop on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, a city about 30 miles south of San Francisco.
It wasn’t immediately clear how the sites were connected, although Pine said the suspect worked for one of the companies. He called the suspect a “disgruntled worker.”
California Senator Josh Becker, who represents the area, said people were killed in separate shootings. San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa tweeted that a shooting took place at a mushroom farm.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office tweeted just before 5 p.m. that a suspect was in custody.
“There is no ongoing threat to the community at this time,” the sheriff’s office said.
Television footage from the area showed officers taking a man into custody without incident.
Aerial images from television also showed police officers gathering evidence from a farm with dozens of greenhouses.
The shooting followed killing of 11 people late Saturday at a ballroom in Southern California.
“We are disgusted by today’s tragedy in Half Moon Bay,” Dave Pine, president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, said in a statement. “We didn’t even have time to mourn those lost in the horrific Monterey Park shooting. Gun violence must stop.”
