Farm worker charged over US gun rampage
A California farm worker has been charged with seven counts of murder for a shooting spree that killed seven people, some of them his co-workers, in the state’s second deadly gun rampage in recent days.
The San Mateo County District Attorney charged Chunli Zhao, 66, the lone suspect in Monday’s massacre at two mushroom farms in the town of Half Moon Bay near San Francisco, with seven counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.
He is expected to appear before a judge at the San Mateo County Superior Court.
Zhao was charged with “special circumstances”, accused of “personally and intentionally” shooting to kill.
