Southern California Shooting
A gunman opened fire at a Southern California real estate office on Wednesday, killing four people, including a 9-year-old boy who the authorities said appeared to have died in his mother’s arms as she tried to shield him from the gunfire.
The shooting was likely related to a “business and personal relationship which existed between the suspect and all of the victims,” said Lt. Jennifer Amat, a spokeswoman for the Orange Police Department, at a news conference on Thursday morning.
“This appears to be an isolated incident, and we believe everyone knew each other,” Lieutenant Amat said.
The boy appeared to have died in his mother’s arms as she attempted to save him during the shooting, the Orange County district attorney, Todd Spitzer, said, before cautioning that formal identification of the boy and the woman had not yet been made.
The woman was also wounded in the shooting and remained in the hospital on Thursday, having undergone emergency treatment.
The victims, who also included a man and two women, were attacked at the offices of Unified Homes, which is a real estate and mobile home dealer, according to the business’s website. Additional details about the victims were not yet available from police officials.
The suspect, identified as Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez, 44, of Fullerton, was also hospitalized in critical condition with a gunshot wound, the authorities said.
At the scene, which covered two floors and a courtyard area of the building, officials recovered several items including a semiautomatic handgun and a backpack containing pepper spray, handcuffs, and ammunition, Lieutenant Amat said, which officials believe belonged to the suspect.
Mr. Gonzalez, the suspect, locked the gates to the complex with bicycle cable locks, and officers had to force their way into the scene, officials said.
