Second mass shooting in California in three days heightens fears of copycat killings

Washington Correspondent

Police have said that the gun used in a mass shooting in California last night was legally purchased.

Seven people were shot dead near San Francisco in what officials have described as workplace violence. Several of the victims were of Asian descent.

The shooting came after 11 people were killed at the weekend in Los Angeles, when a gunman opened fire at a ballroom frequented by Chinese Americans.
