A shooting at a Southern California office building has left four people dead, including a child, and injured a fifth person before police shot and wounded the suspect, police said.
Shots were being fired as officers arrived at a two-storey office building on Lincoln Avenue in Orange, south of Los Angeles, Lt. Jennifer Amat said.
“An officer-involved shooting occurred” and the suspect was taken to a hospital, Lt. Amat said, but she didn’t immediately know his condition.
The shooting was on the second floor of the building, Lt. Amat said. She had no details about the confrontation, what may have sparked the attack or why a child may have been at the building.
The building at 202 W. Lincoln Avenue appeared to be a beige, two-story office building with an open, second-storey balcony. Signs outside indicated a handful of businesses were located there, including an insurance agent and a counseling service.
The situation is now stable and there is no threat to the public.
