A Fourth Mass Shooting In California This Week Left Three People Dead
Investigators were trying to determine if there was a party at the rental home or what type of gathering was occurring, police told the Associated Press.
Saturday’s shooting marks the fourth mass shooting in California this week, and the sixth this month. Exactly one week ago, a mass shooting at a dance studio in Monterey Park killed 11 people, all of them between the ages of 57 to 76, after a Lunar New Year celebration.
Even before the names of the Monterey Park victims were released, another shooter opened fire in Half Moon Bay on Monday, killing seven immigrant laborers who worked on a mushroom farm. And then again on Thursday in Oakland, a shooter injured seven and gunned down one 18-year-old man.
Many have reacted to the news on social media, decrying the rate of mass shootings in America. “In the wee hours of the morning, a shooting happened in Beverly Crest, a wealthy area of LA, north of Beverly Hills…This is America,” one tweeted. “america is about shooting your neighbors,” another said.
