Four people were killed and one injured in a mass shooting at a building complex in the city of Orange Wednesday night, officials say. The shooting was first reported around 5:25 p.m. at 202 West Lincoln Ave., Orange police say.
Officers confronted the active shooter and an officer-involved shooting occurred. People say the four people who were killed included one child. The officers encountered gunfire when they arrived and opened fire, striking the shooter, who was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition. At least two bodies could be seen outside the building, one on a second floor walkway and one in a courtyard. At the scene there were bloody clothes and what appeared to be a weapon as officers investigated. Information about the suspect has not been released. Witnesses reported hearing two distinct sets of shots – one apparently the initial shooting and one the gunfire exchange involving police. Orange police say it was that city’s deadliest shooting since 1997. It marks the third mass shooting in the United States in two weeks, coming after incidents at three Atlanta spas that killed eight people, including six Asian women, and at a Boulder, Colo. supermarket that killed 10.
