Shooter takes three hostages at California veterans' home

Active shooter at Yountville Veterans home

The Napa Valley Register reported the man was wearing body armour and reportedly armed with an automatic weapon.

Sources tell KTVU one of the remaining hostages is the executive director of The Pathway Home, which is a program that serves veterans. He spoke to her by phone. She is in the home's dining hall and not allowed to leave.

But Napa County Sheriff John Robertson told reporters that about 80 students were near the area where the hostages were taken but were never in danger. Investigators know who the gunman is and they know he is armed with a rifle.

At a brief news conference, patrol spokesman Sgt. Robert Nacke said he knew of no injuries. "There were many bullets fired".

California Highway Patrol have said they have officers on the scene and are attempting to "bring the situation to a safe conclusion". Hostage negotiators have not yet contacted the suspect.

The FBI is involved in the negotiation process.

Daylight saving time can be bad for your health
Previously, Canada had observed Daylight Saving Time from the first Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October. The sunset in Tampa on December 22 would happen at about 6:39 p.m., an hour later than last year's 5:39 p.m. sunset.

Shots have been fired at officers, but now there no reports of injuries.

Police have evacuated the property, though some people were still trapped inside. "My prayers go out to the people in the residents building", she told ABC7 News.

The gate at the California Avenue home is closed, restricting access to the 300-bed long-term care facility, said Julie Cusator, public information officer.

Events manager Elizabeth Naylor, who was working about 10 miles north of the veterans' home, said she heard waves of emergency sirens. It will celebrate 134 years on April 1.

The Napa County Sheriff's Department issued an alert to residents warning them to avoid the area.
