Weapon recovered from car
Shortly thereafter, officers found three more dead at another location about eight kilometers away. Allen said a sheriff’s officer found suspect Zhao in his car in Half Moon Bay about two hours after the first call. He was taken into custody and a weapon was recovered from his car. He told that Zhao alone carried out the incident. The Sheriff’s Office did not provide any information on the connection between the two incidents. The reason for the firing is not yet known.
The shootings came a day after 11 people were killed in a shooting at a ballroom dance hall in Southern California late Saturday. California Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted: “I was visiting victims of a mass shooting in the hospital when I was taken away and informed of another shooting incident.” This time Half Moon Bay. Tragedy upon tragedy.
