Seven people were slain in two connected shootings that occurred on Monday at a mushroom farm and a trucking company in a coastal city south of San Francisco, and authorities said a suspect was in custody.
Four individuals were murdered at the farm and three at the trucking company on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, a community approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of San Francisco, according to Dave Pine, president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors.
Although Pine stated that the suspect worked for one of the firms, it wasn’t immediately clear how the places were related.
He referred to the suspect as a “disgruntled employee.”
Josh Becker, a state senator for California who covers the area, claimed that multiple shootings resulted in fatalities.
David Canepa, a supervisor for San Mateo County, tweeted that a single shooting occurred at a mushroom farm.
Just before 5 o’clock, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office tweeted. a suspect was being held in custody.
According to the sheriff’s office, the neighborhood is not under any continuous threat.
Officers were seen without incident putting a man into arrest in local television footage.
Police personnel was also seen gathering evidence from a site with numerous greenhouses in aerial television shots.
Eleven individuals were killed late Saturday at a ballroom dance club in Southern California, which prompted the shooting.
In a statement, Dave Pine, president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, said, “We are saddened by today’s tragedy in Half Moon Bay.
“We haven’t even had a chance to mourn the victims of the horrific massacre in Monterey Park. The use of firearms must end.
