4 dead, 6 injured in shooting at Southern California biker bar

(Qnnflash) – A former law enforcement officer, identified as the gunman, unleashed gunfire at a popular California bar frequented by bikers, tragically resulting in the deaths of three individuals, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

The incident occurred at Cook’s Corner in Trabuco Canyon shortly after 7 p.m., leading to the death of the shooter as well, officials reported.

In total, four people, including the gunman, were pronounced dead at the scene. Additionally, six individuals were transported to a hospital, with five of them suffering from gunshot wounds, as disclosed by Orange County Fire Chief Brian Fennessy.

Upon encountering the armed assailant, Orange County sheriff’s deputies became involved in a confrontation that involved multiple shots fired. This confrontation ultimately resulted in the death of the shooter, according to Undersheriff Jeff Hallock.

“This is an absolutely tragic event, and something that I know is likely weighing heavily on the entire Trabuco Canyon community,” Hallock expressed. He emphasized the significance of Cook’s Corner as a local landmark in south Orange County.

As of now, the identities of the shooter and the victims have not been revealed.

Providence Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo provided a statement indicating that two of the injured individuals were in critical condition, while the remaining four were stable.

Insight from three law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation has suggested that the gunman specifically targeted his wife. However, the status of the wife, whether she is among the deceased or injured, remains uncertain. These sources clarified that the details provided are preliminary and did not disclose the shooter’s previous place of employment.

Hallock mentioned that at least one weapon was recovered from the scene. The investigators are also exploring the possibility that the gunman had a background in law enforcement, though it is too early to confirm such information.

“We’re working to confirm that, and would expect to have that information maybe tomorrow, if in fact it’s true,” Hallock noted.

Upon the deputies’ arrival at the scene, the sounds of gunfire were captured by their radios, an occurrence that was also heard by dispatchers. It remains unclear if this gunfire incident involved the deputies.
