The Angels – Several people were shot dead in the city of Orange, California.
The incident occurred in a smaller office building, local media reported on Wednesday evening (local time), citing the police. Four people were killed and two more injured, the first reports said. A child is said to be among the fatalities.
The alleged shooter was arrested after an exchange of fire with the police and taken to a hospital in the city south of Los Angeles. The situation is under control. The background is still unclear.
According to signs on the facade, there are a handful of shops in the building – including an insurance office, a financial advisory firm, a legal service provider, and a cell phone repair shop.
Just last week, a gunman in the state of Colorado killed ten people in a supermarket. A few days earlier, eight people had been shot dead in three massage parlors in and around Atlanta, Georgia. In the United States, there are regular fatal incidents involving firearms that are easy to buy there.
“I am deeply affected by the reports of the Orange County shooting and and I think of the victims and their families as we try to learn more about the case,” tweeted Congresswoman Katie Porter on Twitter following the incident.
