Northern California Veterans Home on Lockdown- Reports of Shots Fired
An official from the veteran's home told the news station that it was unclear if the shots were fired from inside or outside the building.
"This in an active and fluid situation", California Highway Patrol Sergeant Robert Nacke told reporters in Yountville, though he declined to provide any further information about the situation inside the home.
The Yountville Veterans Home is the largest such facility in the United States and is home to about 1,000 veterans, according to the home's website. Yountville sits about 56 miles north of San Francisco and is in the North Bay portion of the San Francisco Bay area.
Napa County Fire captain Chase Beckman said earlier that the gunman took at least three people hostage.
He tells KTVU-TV the property of the large veterans home was evacuated after a man with a gun was reported on the grounds.
"The CHP is aware of the incident at the Yountville Veterans Home and has officers and aerial resources on scene working with Napa County Sheriff's deputies and others to bring the situation to a safe conclusion", CHP said on Twitter. The suspect has reportedly fired multiple shots at officers but there have yet to be any injuries.
The Pathway Home is a privately run program on the veteran home's grounds, in the wealthy Napa Valley town of Yountville.
