Three children are dead after a father opened fire at a place of worship named The Church in Sacramento. The father then shot himself and died at the scene.
The shooting occurred Monday afternoon in the Arden Arcade area of Sacramento, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to KOVR.
A fifth person was also slain during the shooting, police Sergeant Rod Grassmann told reporters. Police called the shooting “very targeted,” according to KXTV.
Video taken by KXTV’s helicopter showed first responders carrying a person through the church parking lot. But the responders weren’t able to revive the person after multiple attempts, the news outlet reported.
It’s unclear if any others were harmed. Newsweek contacted the Sacramento Police Department for comment.
