2 dead, 2 wounded in shooting near California polling unit

Voting in a California neighbourhood near two polling units were suspended when a gun man with an assault rifle opened fire killing a man and critically wounding two others before the assailant was found dead inside a nearby home reports say.

Minutes after the gun battle involving the assailant and Azusa police ended, one polling unit was reopened.

The shooting “had nothing to do with the ballot or voting,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said; “It just happened to be across the street from the park where the voting was taking place and also an elementary school” that was being used as a polling site.

“Nobody was shooting at those locations,” Corina said.

Investigators didn’t know whether the gunman died by police bullets or killed himself, Corina said.
