Two related shootings left seven people dead at a mushroom farm and transportation company in a coastal community south of San Francisco on Monday, and one suspect was detained, officials said.
Dave Pine, chairman of the San Mateo County Board of Trustees, says four people died at the farm and three at the trucking company on the edge of Half Moon Bay, a town about 30 miles south of San Francisco.
It was not immediately clear how the locations were connected.

California State Senator Josh Becker, who represents the area, said people were killed in several shootings. San Mateo County supervisor David Canepa tweeted that a shooting took place at a mushroom farm.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office tweeted just before 5 p.m. that a suspect was in custody.
“There is no ongoing threat to the community at this time,” the sheriff’s office said.
Television footage from the area showed officers taking a man into custody without incident. Aerial television footage also showed police officers collecting evidence from a farm with dozens of greenhouses.
