HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — Four people were killed and three were seriously injured in a shooting at two farms in Northern California’s Half Moon Bay on Monday afternoon, a source in the Bay Area confirmed to ABC7 News.
During the first shooting incident at the Mushroom Farm, one person was killed and three were seriously injured. All victims are being taken to Stanford Medical Center, the source said.
A second shooting incident at Concord Farms left three people dead, a source said.
Sheriff’s officials said the suspect was taken into custody.
Incidents were reported near Highway 92 and the Half Moon Bay city limits.
A Google Earth map shows the first scene, which is reported to be at the Mountain Mushroom Farm on San Mateo Road near Highway 1.
Locals say this is known to be a marijuana farm.
The second location is south of the city center.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office tweeted shortly before 5 p.m. that the suspect was in custody.
“There is no ongoing threat to the community at this time,” the sheriff’s office said.
Television footage from the area showed officers apprehending the man without incident.
Aerial television footage also showed police officers gathering evidence from a farm with dozens of greenhouses.
The shooting followed the killing of 11 people late Saturday at a Southern California ballroom.
