Half Moon Bay community reels after mass shooting

A mass shooting at a farm and a nearby site in California which killed seven people was probably a case of "workplace violence", said police.

The attack took place on Tuesday in the coastal city of Half Moon Bay. Some of the victims were Chinese-American.

Suspect Chunli Zhao, 66, was arrested after driving to a police station.

The incident took place only two days after 11 were shot dead in Monterey Park - south-east of Half Moon Bay - during Lunar New Year celebrations.

The back-to-back shootings came so close together that California's Governor Gavin Newsom was meeting victims of the first attack in a hospital when he was briefed about the second.

He voiced exasperation over US gun laws, and in emotional remarks at a news conference said he had grown weary of having to "say the same things we hear again and again" in the wake of mass shootings.
