3 Dead, 2 Hurt in Calif. Shooting
PISMO BEACH, Calif. - A gunman opened fire inside a crowded Denny's restaurant during lunch hour Wednesday, killing two people and wounding two before taking his own life, police said.
"There could have been 30 or 40 people inside. As the shootings occurred, people were fleeing the restaurant, hiding in bathrooms," Cmdr. Jeff Norton said.
Police Chief Joe Cortez said authorities have not found any connection between the gunman and the victims, and it does not appear he had a grudge against Denny's or its employees.
He said the man began shooting within a few steps of the restaurant's front door.
"The witnesses described him as coming in with a dazed look on his face, then they said he started shooting," Cortez said.
The names of the gunman and the victims were not immediately released. Nor was the condition of the wounded.
Pismo Beach is in San Luis Obispo County, a 3 1/2-hour drive northwest of Los Angeles. Link
