A suspected gunman was arrested Monday after seven people were shot and killed in two locations near a small town south of San Francisco on Monday, authorities said.
The victims were found near Half Moon Bay, a coastal city of about 11,000 about 30 miles south of San Francisco, San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus told reporters.
The suspected shooter was identified as 67-year-old Zhao Chunli. Aerial video captured by NBC Bay Area showed Chunli turning himself in to authorities at a sheriff’s substation in Half Moon Bay.
The shooting comes two days after a mass shooting in Southern California left 11 dead who had gathered at a Los Angeles County dance hall for Lunar New Year celebrations.
Investigators in that case believe the alleged gunman may have been targeting his ex-wife.
«At the hospital meeting with the victims of a mass shooting when they took me aside to inform me about another shooting.» Governor Gavin Newsom said Monday. «This time in Half Moon Bay.»
«Tragedy after tragedy,» he said.
