Four Dead, Including A Child, In Southern California Shooting


The gunman was wounded but taken into care after killing four people in a business area in Orange, California.

Another tragedy, reportedly including a mass shooting, has transpired in California. As America has prided itself on reopening as vaccines become more and more readily available, the United States has been troubled with an increasing volume of violence. Within the last two weeks, we've experienced the Atlanta spa shootings, the Colorado supermarket shooting, three shooting incidents in one evening near the exact location in Virginia Beach, and learned of many injuries in a mass shooting in Washington, D.C.

On Wednesday (March 31), records state that another shooting took place in the town of Orange at a business complex. The investigation is continuing, but it's said that officers descended on the scene after receiving a call about gunfire. The event was still in action when officers arrived, and a bystander who lived in apartments nearby told KTLA News that he listened to "seven to ten gunshots within a couple of seconds."

An officer initiated fire on the gunman, striking the person, and it's reported that they are in critical condition. Four people were killed during the tragic incident, including a child. The age of the youngest victim has not yet been given. A woman was rushed to the hospital and is stated to be in critical condition.

A witness named Cody Lev insisted that he was at his house near the scene when he heard shots, but he stated he "heard a series of gunshots, spaced out by about 40 minutes before police responded." The identification of the shooter has not been revealed at the time of this publication. It is still unclear if this is a random mass shooting or if the perpetrator knew his victims beforehand.
