A California church shooting: father kills his three children and another person before killing himself

513

A shooting at a church leaves four people killed, including three kids and a gunman turning a gun on himself in Sacramento Monday evening, police said.

The gunfire happened around 5 p.m. at the church on Wyda Way in Arden-Arcade in Sacramento County.

The shooter identified was as 39-year-old David Fidel Mora-Rojas, who is a father of three children, girls aged 9, 10 and 13, according to Sgt. Rod Grassmann with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.

Mora-Rojas killed all his three kids and another person in a room of the main sanctuary. A church worker heard gunshots upstairs and called 911. It is unclear whether the fourth victim was a churchgoer or a church worker.

"We are actively monitoring the shooting at a church in Sacramento and working closely with local law enforcement," tweeted the Office of California Governor Gavin Newsom. "Our thoughts are with the community, parishioners, and all those impacted by this horrific event."

The gunmen then fatally shot himself, reports say.  

The father had been estranged from his children’s mother, who had a restraining order against him.

Police ruled the shooting as a “domestic violence”-related incident.
