After a clear separation between police and snipers, three women were killed Friday night at the California Veterans’ House in Yountville, according to authorities.
The suspect was also found dead, telling the Chief of Staff of the California Highway Patrol at the Golden Gate Unit Chris Childs.
Three victims were described earlier in Pathway Home, an advisory service for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The suspect was a client at the facility until he left two weeks ago, according to State Secretary Bill Dodd.
It is unclear whether women are randomly chosen or have links to the shooter.
Hostage negotiations have attempted to contact armed men for several hours at the San Francisco facility, but they can not do so, according to a California Highway Rupee spokeswoman, Robert Nacken. When the victims were found, the scientists were re-identified when death occurred at a stalemate.
California Governor Jerry Brown said the shootings “tragically took three dedicated men to serve veterans.”
“Our hearts go to families and loved ones and to the community of Yountville,” Brown said in a statement.
