California shocked by back-to-back mass shootings

By Jordi Bou

January 24, 2023 - Seven people were shot dead south of San Francisco in the second mass shooting in California in three days.

Two fatal shootings took place at a mushroom farm and a trucking firm on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, a coastal community south of San Francisco, officials said.

Police have arrested a suspect, named as 67-year-old Zhao Chunli, in connection with the shooting.

The shooting followed the killing of 11 people over the weekend at a ballroom dance hall in the southern California city of Monterey Park, near Los Angeles.

The shootings are being treated as related, although the connection between the locations was not immediately clear.
