加里福利亞當局稱,在Napa Valley 酒莊區退伍軍人之家中,一名持槍歹徒劫持了3名人質,警方已與之交火。

Napa縣警長John Robertson星期五下午告訴記者,交火中發射了許多子彈但是沒有人員受傷。他說目前還不知道人質的狀況和槍手的動機。他還說自週五上午當局就一直試圖與搶手的手機聯絡,他們知道歹徒身份但沒有公佈名字。

警方在上午10點半向居民發出警告避開該地區。

Napa County Fire captain Chase Beckman said they received a call about an armed man on the grounds of the Yountville facility and no injured people had been treated there.

The Napa Valley Register reported a man wearing body armour and armed with an automatic weapon had entered the home.

The newspaper reported the suspect was believed to be a member of The Pathway Home, a privately run program for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with emotional traumas.

The man was discharged from the treatment program two weeks ago, the newspaper said.

The sheriff's department issued an alert to residents warning them to avoid the area because of "activity at the veterans' home in Yountville".

Authorities said officers had exchanged gunfire with the gunman and although "many bullets" were fired the deputies were not injured.

Napa County Sheriff John Robertson said he did not know the status of the hostages or the gunman's motive.

Authorities know who the gunman is but would not reveal his identity.

California Highway Patrol Assistant Chief Chris Child said they had not made contact with the gunman who was confined to one room, but that hostage negotiators were standing by.

He said the hostages were employees of The Pathway Home.
An armoured police vehicle, ambulances and several firetrucks could be seen at the scene.

The facility is reportedly the largest veterans' home in the United States, with about 1,000 residents.

Jan Thornton of Vallejo is among hundreds of relatives worried about their loved ones at the veterans' home.

She said her 96-year-old father — a World War II fighter pilot — was inside a hospital wing.

Ms Thornton said she was still shaking and she had not been able to talk to her father.

But she said she was able to talk to one of his friends, who was also locked down, and he told her that her father was safe.

She said was worried about the stress of the situation, considering her father's age and that he has post-traumatic stress disorder and dementia.

She said her "heart just bleeds for the people that are being held hostage".

Army veteran and resident Bob Sloan said "people are starting to get concerned because it's been going on for so long".

Veterans of WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam War, the Gulf War and the more recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan now live at the home, according to the facility's website.

美國加州退伍軍人之家槍擊及挾持人質事件,警方證實槍手是一名譯音姓黃、曾任陸軍步兵,並在阿富汗服役的退伍軍人。至於3名遇害人質均曾為槍手治療創傷後遺症的職員。槍手患有創傷壓力後遺症,有死者親屬表示,他近日被趕出治療計劃。

事發在當地周五早上,手持自動步槍的槍手頸上掛有子彈,身穿避彈衣,駕駛租來的汽車到現場,闖入揚特維爾退伍軍人之家一個派對。他當時向在場人士開火,挾持多名人質,並一度與警員駁火。槍手其後釋放多人,留下3名人質,包括心理治療部的總監和心理治療師。

當局談判專家嘗試與槍手交談,但談判未有重大進展,槍手長達8小時未有回應。警方其後入內發現,4人已經死亡,包括3名人質及槍手。

警方公布,疑兇是36歲的Albert Wong。他曾出任陸軍步兵3年,其中一年被派往阿富汗服役,獲頒阿富汗參戰二星獎章等4個參戰獎章。當地傳媒指,他擁有保安及兩項槍械牌照。據報他患有創傷壓力後遺症,2013年8月退役,曾於案發地點接受治療。他兩星期前已完成治療,但亦有報道指他是被趕走。當局表示,暫未清楚他是有目標挑選受害人,還是隨機殺人。

肇事的私營退伍軍人之家,是全美最大的退伍軍人之家,住了大約1000人,大部分都是身體殘障或已年老的退伍軍人。
