(KRON) — Local leaders have taken to social media to weigh in on the deadly Half Moon Bay shooting that killed seven people and critically injured another Monday afternoon.

Chunli Zhao, 67, was taken into custody after driving his vehicle to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office substation. This is the country’s sixth mass shooting of the year and California’s second within two days.

A mass shooting in Southern California’s Monterey Park killed 11 people Saturday night. An hours-long manhunt ended when the suspected shooter took his own life after a standoff with police. 

Local leaders issued the following statements at Monday evening’s press conference in Half Moon Bay:

Half Moon Bay Vice Mayor Joaquin Jimenez 

“This is something that we get to watch on the news. I’d never think that it’s going to come and hit home. Today, we are the news. Our community has been affected and I really want to thank our law enforcement.”

“We grieve tonight for the deceased members of our community. This is a horrific event, one that we would never imagine would occur in San Mateo County. Gun violence in this country is at completely unacceptable levels. It’s really hit home tonight. Our hearts are broken.”
