Sheriff: Vet Shot Self After Killing 3 Mental Health Workers

YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say a combat veteran shot himself in the head with a shotgun after fatally shooting three mental health workers at a California veterans home. The Napa County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that 36-year-old Albert Wong shot the three workers in the head with a rifle at the California Veterans Home in Yountville. The sheriff didn’t release the type of rifle used. Wong then used a shotgun to shoot himself in the head on Friday at The Pathway Home building. Wong has been recently expelled from Pathway, which treats post-traumatic stress syndrome and other mental health disorders. Napa County Sheriff’s Capt. Steven Blower didn’t release an estimated time of the shootings. No gunshots were heard beyond about 10:30 a.m. when authorities surrounded the building for the next seven hours.
