Shots Fired And Hostage Situation at Veterans Home of California

A man who exchanged gunfire with law enforcement officers is holding three people hostage inside the Veterans Home of California in Yountville. The hostages are employees of The Pathway Home, a counseling service for veterans who suffer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and not residents of the facility north of San Francisco, Napa County Sheriff John Robertson said at a news conference. Negotiating teams are trying to talk with the gunman, who is believed to be armed with a rifle. The man held other people hostage but released them, Robertson said. He said authorities know the gunman’s identify but are not releasing it yet. He didn’t give a motive for the gunman’s actions. Nobody is known to be injured, he said, but earlier the man and officers fired shots at each other.
