Fire Station Shooting

Lompoc, CA

— A gunman fired several shots into a Lompoc fire station Monday afternoon, narrowly missing a firefighter, then calmly walked away before being quickly apprehended by police.

Shouting that he was “fighting for freedom,” the gunman fired several rounds from a small caliber semi-automatic handgun into the building’s front window, said Sgt. Michael Collins, of the Lompoc Police Department.

None of the three firefighters in the station were injured.
