7 Dead in Shootings on 2 Farms in California

A worker allegedly fatally shot seven coworkers and injured others in shootings at two nurseries in the Northern California city of Half Moon Bay.

The Monday tragedy led to the arrest of 67-year-old Chunlie Zhao, who later turned himself in to the police.

"Some of the victims in Monday's shooting were gunned down in front of horrified children at the two scenes separated by several miles on the outskirts of the small city along the California's coast, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, citing San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus," the New York Post reported.

"Zhao, a Half Moon Bay resident, is believed to have acted alone and was 'fully cooperating' with investigators after his arrest, Corpus said at an evening press conference, according to the newspaper," it added.

"The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office said deputies found four dead people in an unincorporated part of the county at about 2:30 p.m," the Blaze reported.

"A fifth victim was found and taken to Stanford Medical Center to receive treatment for life-threatening injuries," it continued.

"Three other dead people were found at a second location just minutes later about a mile away," the report added.

Investigators recovered the weapon they believe was used in the shootings from the vehicle of the alleged shooter. It is stated that he acted alone.

Half Moon Bay's Mayor Deborah Penrose said some of the victims were farm workers, while another source said all of the workers were of Chinese background.

The tragic shooting also comes just after another California shooting that left 11 dead during a Lunar New Year celebration in Monterey Park.
