Seven people were shot and killed on Monday Jan. 23, 2023 in Half Moon Bay, and police said they have a suspect in the killings in custody.
Kati McHugh, who described herself as a member of the local agricultural community, was at the Half Moon Bay sheriff’s substation for a news conference on the shooting when the suspect arrived and was quickly taken into custody by deputies. She captured the scene on video.
“I was surprised to see (the suspect) here and of course hopeful that he came to turn himself in,” McHugh said. “It was shocking and I was very impressed with the way the officers took care of the takedown. It wasn’t in any way adding energy to the situation.”
“He was quiet,” McHugh said about the suspect. “He didn’t react much when he was taken down and it all happened pretty calmly. Scroll down to view the video.
