Shooting Reported Near Polling Stations in Southern California

One person is dead and at least three others wounded.


One person was killed and at least three other people were shot in Azusa, California, on Tuesday afternoon, according to police reports. Police locked down two nearby middle schools being used as polling stations, but there is no indication whether the shooting is related to the election.

Capt. Jeff Scroggin of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told the Los Angeles Times that there is one heavily armed suspect who has been surrounded by police. The Times reported that the suspect fired at least 20 shots from a rifle at officers who arrived at the scene of the shooting, but no officers were injured.

A press conference on the shooting will be held at 7:30 p.m. ET.
