The death toll in Wednesday afternoon’s mass shooting at a Southern California beauty salon rose to eight as Seal Beach police reported two of three critically injured survivors died.
A ninth person remained in critical condition, Sgt. Steve Bowles said late Wednesday afternoon.
Six people were found dead inside the Salon Meritage after police responded to a call about shots being fired inside the business shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday, police said. Three more were found critically injured, Bowles said.
A suspect, described as a white male, is in custody, he added.
“He was cooperative. He did not provide any resistance to the officers and he was taken into custody,” Bowles said
