1 Person Dead & 3 Injured After Shooting Near Polling Place In California

The LA Times is reporting that at least one person has been killed and three injured after an active shooter opened fire near a polling place in Azusa, California. The Los Angeles County Sherriff confirmed that police are currently dealing with one suspect who is heavily armed.

“This is a very volatile and critical situation,” said Officer Jerry Willison of the Azusa Police Department. Few details about the shooting have been released, and police have urged residents in the area to stay in their homes.
Local resident Roberto Chavez told the LA Times that the gunman, who wore black pants and a white shirt, was someone he recognised as someone who frequently visits a neighbours home. Police told Chavez to remain indoors as the gunman had allegedly barricaded himself in a home.
The exact location of the shooting has not been divulged for the safety of the officers and locals.
