Chunli Zhao, a 67-year-old local man who might have worked on one or both of the targeted farms, was later identified as the suspect. Debbie Ruddock, a member of the Half Moon Bay City Council, said that the victims were Chinese farm workers.

Less than 48 hours prior, on the night of celebration before the Lunar New Year, a shooter opened fire on 20 people, killing 11, in Monterey Park, a California city located just east of Los Angeles. Asian Americans predominate in that community.

The suspect was identified as a disgruntled worker who worked at one of the farms, however, it was unclear how the two businesses might be related at the time. Authorities reported that the victims were all thought to be employees.

The sheriff’s office said that a media staging will be set up at a substation at 537 Kelly Ave. during the police reaction to the shooting. A man in handcuffs was spotted leaving the substation at about 4:40 p.m. He was wearing a white baseball cap.

The shooting suspect drove himself to the substation situated between the two companies, where he turned himself in to deputies, according to the sheriff’s office.

Gavin Newsom issued the following post on social media in the wake of the latest shootings: “At the hospital meeting with victims of a mass shooting when I was pulled aside to be briefed of another shooting.



Suspect’s Motive

He was identified as Zhao Chunli, a 67-year-old local of Half Moon Bay. The sheriff’s office reported that Chunli’s car had the gun used in the shootings.

Authorities later acknowledged that they thought the semiautomatic rifle was the only weapon used in the massacre, however, they were unable to identify how it was obtained. At the IDES Hall, located at 735 Main St. in Half Moon Bay, a family reunion facility has been established.

At a press conference on Monday night, San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus remarked, “This kind of shooting is awful.” We hear about this tragedy far too frequently, but today it particularly affected San Mateo County.

There is no known reason for the fatal gunshot. Only two days prior, a mass shooting in Monterey Park following a Lunar New Year Festival on Saturday night resulted in the deaths of 10 persons and the injuries of an additional 10.

Watch the moment when the suspect caught

This is the moment 67-year-old Chunli Zhao was taken down after police say he killed 7 people and injured two at farms in Half Moon Bay. Zhao was arrested after being found in his vehicle in the parking lot of the Sheriff’s Office Half Moon Bay police substation.

He was taken into custody without incident and a weapon was located in his vehicle, the sheriff said. Zhao is believed to have acted alone. My photographer colleague Edgar captured this moment today.

He realized what was happening, and dropped to his knees to keep rolling from the ground. After the shooting in Monterey Park yesterday which killed 11… it’s hard to grapple with the reality of our world. This hits far too close to home. – DION LIM
