Four people, including child, killed in Orange, California, shooting

Four people, including a child, were killed in a shooting at a business complex in Orange, California, Wednesday evening, officials said.

A fifth victim, a female, was shot and taken to a hospital, as was the suspect, police Lt. Jennifer Amat said. Both were in critical condition. Police said officers arrived to an active shooting scene about 5:30 p.m.

"Our officers did engage in an officer-involved shooting," she said. The suspect, who has not been publicly identified, suffered a gunshot wound, but Amat said it was not known if it was self-inflicted. No officers were injured. A gun was recovered, she said, without providing further details about it.

Police said that they were working to determine a motive in the shooting and that the investigation would include multiple agencies.

The building appeared to have several offices. The name of the business where the shooting occurred was not disclosed, but Amat said that there's an upstairs and downstairs with a courtyard area.

"It is a situation that was moving from different areas, so it's my understanding it's throughout that area," she said.

Gov. Gavin Newsom called the events "horrifying and heartbreaking," and said in a statement that "our hearts are with the families impacted by this terrible tragedy tonight."

U.S. Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif., said that she was monitoring developments.

“I’m deeply saddened by reports of a mass shooting in Orange County, and I’m continuing to keep victims and their loved ones in my thoughts as we continue to learn more," she said in a statement. "My team and I will continue to monitor the situation closely.”

Wednesday's violence comes as the nation mourns recent mass shootings in Colorado and Atlanta. Ten people died last week when a gunman opened fire at a Boulder, Colorado, grocery store. A week earlier, eight people, including six women of Asian descent, were killed in three Atlanta-area spas.

Amat said that Orange is safe city and that Wednesday's violence is the worst shooting in the city in decades.

In 1997, the city was the scene of a mass shooting when a California Department of Transportation employee who had been fired fatally shot four people at a maintenance yard before being killed by police.

Orange is a city of about 140,000 people, 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
