Police officers outside the building in Orange California on 31 March 2021

Multiple people were killed Wednesday evening in Orange in a shooting, police said.

A report of shots being fired sent officers to a small, two-story building on west Lincoln Avenue in Orange at about 5.30pm Wednesday, a police Facebook posting said.

The police statement said an "officer-involved shooting" had occurred and that the situation had since been "stabilized" with no further threat to the public. It's unclear who shot the suspect, who was in critical condition.

She says the victims also included one person who was wounded.

In a tweet, Gov. Gavin Newsom called the killings "horrifying and heartbreaking".

"Horrifying and heartbreaking. Our hearts are with the families impacted by this awful tragedy tonight", California Governor Gavin Newsom said in a tweet.

Tedros said the global experts would hold a press conference on Tuesday to discuss their findings. But they said they had worked to rank a number of hypotheses according to how likely they were.

A fifth person was transported to a local hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound, Lt. Jennifer Amat said.

"It's just such a tragedy for the victims, their families, our community and our police department", Amat said. Some facts reported by the media may later turn out to be wrong.

Rep. Katie Porter, a California Democrat whose district includes the city of Orange, said on Twitter that she was "deeply saddened" by reports of the shooting. Two other people were led away in handcuffs, the paper said. Eight people, six of them of Asian descent, were killed earlier this month in a series of shootings at Atlanta-area spas.

"I can tell you that we haven't had an incident like this in the city of Orange since 1997", Amat said.

The city of Orange is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Los Angeles and home to about 140,000 people.
