    You mean the state that releases convicted felons by the busload every day has a crime taking place?

    3 hostages which are Pathway Home employees- not the veterans home employees. 3 hostage negotiators on scene, no contact yet. Swat on the way. He has a rifle and exchanged fire with deputies. They are in a room. They know who he is, but no none motivation. He did release some hostages, still has 3. From press conference.

    The Associated Press reported the husband of a worker at the veterans home said a gunman quietly came into a going-away party and let some leave, while keeping others hostage.

    Larry Kamer told the AP his wife, Devereaux Smith, is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Pathway Home, a program which treats veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with post-traumatic stress disorder. It was not known whether the suspect was receiving treatment at the facility.

    Kamer told the AP his wife was inside the home’s dining hall and was not allowed to leave.

    Police radio transmissions described the suspect as a male, 5-foot-6, with a rifle and a scope. At least 15-30 shots were fired at deputies, according to the radio transmission.

    A senator told a reporter that the gunman had either been through the ptsd program (severe ptsd program) or was formerly in it. NBC Bay Area. It was supposedly a going away party for one of the employees.
