Gun attacks have happened again in the United States. Seven people were killed by a gunman in the country's California. The police arrested the gunman. On Tuesday (January 24), the British media BBC reported the information. The latest attacks took place in two separate locations in the coastal town of Half Moon Bay, about 50 kilometers south of San Francisco, the BBC reported.

The attacker's name is Zhao Chunli (67). He is a local resident. The bodies of four of those killed by the gunman were found in a mushroom farm. The bodies of the other three were found a short distance from there. Investigators are yet to determine the motive behind the attack. "The suspect is in custody," San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus said of the shootings. There is now no threat to the residents of the area. '

Christina Corpus said one victim was being treated at a hospital. His condition is critical. Earlier, a gunman attacked a ballroom dance studio near Los Angeles, California last Saturday night local time. A total of 19 people were injured. Chinese New Year was being celebrated in that studio. Thousands of people join it. The injured were admitted to the hospital.

In this regard, County Sheriff Robert Luna said on Sunday (January 22) that they still do not know the motive of the attack. There are 5 men and 5 women among those killed. And they are probably of Asian origin.
