A shooting on Saturday by a former worker at a Walmart distribution center in Red Bluff, Calif., left an employee dead and several others injured, the authorities said.
Police officers killed the gunman, a 31-year-old man identified as Louis Lane, Lt. Yvette Borden, a spokeswoman for the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office, said. Mr. Lane had worked at the distribution center in February 2019 but was let go for failing to show up for his shift, the lieutenant said.
Walmart employees said Mr. Lane drove around the center’s parking lot four times around 3:30 p.m. local time, Lieutenant Borden said. He crashed into the building and started firing randomly into the distribution center and parking lot with a semiautomatic rifle, she said.
Minutes later, an officer arrived and exchanged gunfire with Mr. Lane. “I’m told it was quite a bit of gunfire,” she said. Another officer arrived shortly after, and Mr. Lane was shot at 3:48 p.m.
Deputies found a worker, Martin Haro-Lozano, badly wounded and took him in their own vehicle to a hospital, where he died, the authorities said. Six people were taken to hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to moderate.
Lieutenant Borden said officials had not yet identified a motive for the shooting. She said the Walmart shooting in Red Bluff, a rural area about 130 miles north of Sacramento, was not connected to one earlier in the day in Shingletown, Calif., in which three people were killed.
A Walmart employee, Franklin Lister, 51, said he and a group of his co-workers had just clocked into their afternoon shifts when an employee ran down the hall shouting: “Active gunfire! Active shooter!”
Mr. Lister said he had seen blood dripping from his colleague’s arm.
“That’s when I realized it wasn’t a drill,” he said.
Mr. Lister and his co-workers ran out the nearest fire exit.
As they were running, he said, they heard 50 to 60 gunshots — at which point they picked up their speed and helped one another over a barbed-wire fence.
A 51-year-old man died after he collided with another surfer at popular Rincon Point in Ventura County, authorities said.
Gerry Gilhool was transported to Community Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, said Capt. Victor Medina, of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. The incident was declared an accident, he said.
About 1:30 p.m, rescue workers were dispatched to the popular surfing spot north of Ventura to assist a man who was unconscious on the beach, Medina said.
Witnesses told authorities that two men had collided in the water and both suffered head injuries. The other surfer, whose name was not immediately available, apparently drove himself to a hospital, Medina said.
A nurse who happened to be at the beach performed CPR on Gilhool until paramedics arrived and continued trying to save his life, Medina said.
Medina said the incident was “a total accident.”
“Yesterday was apparently some rough waters out there, and it’s common for surfers, especially if you have a weekend and a large crowd out there, it can get crowded, and they cross each other,” Medina said.
