A CHILD and three others were killed in a mass shooting at an office building in California last night, authorities said.
The shooting happened at 5.30pm in the city of Orange, in Orange County, and police said a suspect was critically injured with a gunshot wound and has been hospitalised.
Police confirmed that officers exchanged fire with the suspect who was eventually shot.
A woman was also critically wounded at the scene and rushed to hospital.
No additional details about the suspect or victims was available as of Wednesday night.
This is the third deadly mass shooting in the United States in two weeks after a massacre in Atlanta, Georgia and another in Boulder, Colorado.
It is not yet known what the Orange shooter's motive was.
Video shared online appears to show cops handcuffing the suspect as he struggles on the ground.
A Twitter user wrote: "Officers seen removing two handguns from an individual who lie motionless on the ground. Officers could be seen leading two others away in handcuffs."
According to the Orange County Register, two other people were detained following the deadly shooting.
