At least seven people were killed in two related shootings at separate locations in Half Moon Bay, California, on Monday afternoon, according to media reports.
Three people were killed at a trucking firm on the outskirts of town, and four people were killed at a mushroom farm in the town, ABC 7 News reported.
San Mateo County Board of Supervisors President Dave Pine said the suspect worked for one of the businesses, according to ABC 7.
He said the suspect was a “disgruntled worker.”
The suspect, identified as 67-year-old Zhao Chunli, is now in custody, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a shooting with “multiple victims” around 4 p.m. PST, the office said in a tweet.
“There is no ongoing threat to the community at this time,” the sheriff’s office added.
All victims were Chinese farm workers, Half Moon Bay Councilwoman Debbie Ruddock told NBC News.

Monday’s shooting was the second mass shooting in California in a few days. Eleven people were killed in a mass shooting Saturday in Monterey Park when a 72-year-old gunman opened fire at a dance hall. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) confirmed the shooting in Half Moon Bay in a tweet Monday evening.
“At the hospital meeting with victims of a mass shooting when I get pulled away to be briefed about another shooting,” Newsom tweeted. “This time in Half Moon Bay. Tragedy upon tragedy.”
