4 shot, 1 dead at Korean retreat center in Calif.
By GILLIAN FLACCUS,ociated Press Writer
TEMECULA, Calif. - A gunman opened fire at a remote Korean Christian retreat
center Tuesday night, leaving one person dead and at least three people
injured, authorities said.
Authorities were first called to the rural area about 7 p.m. after receiving
reports about a man shooting his wife, California Highway Patrol spokesman
Mario Lopez said.
But investigators were still trying to learn the circumstances of the
shootings, and were hindered by a language barrier in trying to sort out the
facts, Riverside County Sheriff's spokesman Dennis Gutierrez said.
"We have some nuns that are very distraught," he said.
The name and age of the suspected shooter was not released and the identity
of the dead victim were being withheld until relatives were notified.
At least two of the victims were critically injured. The gunman was also
believed to be among the wounded at the Kkottongnae Retreat Camp, located in
Temecula about 85 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
