At least seven people were killed in two shootings at separate locations in Half Moon Bay, California, on Monday afternoon, according to media reports.

Deputies with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shooting with “multiple victims” around 4 p.m. PST, the office said in a tweet.

The suspect, identified as 67-year-old Zhao Chunli, is now in custody, according to the sheriff’s office.

“There is no ongoing threat to the community at this time,” the sheriff’s office said in a tweet.

Four of the victims were found in one location, and three other bodies were discovered at a separate location nearby. All victims were Chinese farm workers, Half Moon Bay Councilwoman Debbie Ruddock told NBC News.

Monday’s shooting was the second mass shooting in California in a few days. Eleven people were killed in a mass shooting Saturday in Monterey Park when a 72-year-old gunman opened fire at a dance hall. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) confirmed the shooting in Half Moon Bay in a tweet Monday evening.

“At the hospital meeting with victims of a mass shooting when I get pulled away to be briefed about another shooting,” Newsom tweeted. “This time in Half Moon Bay. Tragedy upon tragedy.”
