A man has been taken into custody in connection with a shooting at a synagogue in California on Saturday afternoon that resulted in injuries, the authorities said.
The Poway Station of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter that the shooting happened around 11:30 a.m. local time at the Chabad of Poway synagogue in Poway, Calif., about 25 miles north of San Diego. It said that there were injuries but that no additional details were immediately available.
Derryl Acosta, a spokesman at Palomar Medical Center, said the hospital’s trauma center in Escondido, Calif., was expecting at least one patient and that one to four additional patients might also be on the way.
Walter Vandivort, who lives in the neighborhood of the synagogue, said he heard gunshots while he was indoors. He said he was unsure how many he heard.
