Suspected gunman, 3 women found dead after hostages taken at California veterans home


A suspected gunman and three women he was believed to have taken hostage at a California veterans home were found dead Friday, nearly eight hours after reports of shots fired at the facility, officials said.

The grim end to the situation at the Veterans Home of California in Yountville, a 600-acre facility north of Napa wine country, was announced at around 7:45 p.m. local time (10:45 p.m. ET).

“This is a tragic piece of news, one that we were really hoping we wouldn’t have to come before the public to give,” Chris Childs, assistant chief of the California Highway Patrol Golden Gate Division, said at a news conference.

Childs said that law enforcement officers entered the room where the gunman was thought to be holding the hostages at around 6 p.m. and discovered one man and three women dead. Law enforcement had said they believed the suspect was armed with a rifle and was holding the hostages inside a room on the grounds.

    This is what happens when the vets can’t get the physical and mental help they need from the VA! It’s reported that he had PSTD and felt he wasn’t being helped…thank you Obamation!

    Just toss the perpetrators body in down town San Francisco with all the crap, garbage and needles! It will decompose there!

    This is too bad this has to happen anywhere but I wonder if these liberal states are starting to see a paternity here. Why is it happening in states with the toughest gun laws. Are they not enforced or is it when you disarm the public they are targets to be pryed on by the crazy who are not afraid of the public fighting back?

      If “conventional wisdom” says make more and stricter laws will control gun violence, why is it that not a single gun law has stopped gun violence? Since I went to Driver’s Education and got my license in the mid-70’s, we have stiffened our DUI laws, yet there are still deaths form DUI. I am not saying we should accept the deaths, just that they are inevitable. If more and stiffer laws were the answer. I would be all for them. However, only a complete Pollyanna would believe that the “bad guys” are going to just say “Hey, now there’s a law I am going to follow”. Just like they can not believe that a person who is going to drink and drive will stop because we want hem to.
