Workplace shooting leaves 2 dead near L.A.

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) ” A gunman shot one person to death and wounded two others at a tire shop Tuesday, then apparently killed himself, police said.

Police found the victims after responding to reports of shots fired at a Pro Tire shop around 7:30 a.m., Sgt. David Livingstone said. All were employees or customers, he said.

A 20-year-old man was in critical condition and a 37-year-old man was in fair condition at Simi Valley Hospital, hospital spokesman Jeremy Brewer said. They were expected to survive, Livingstone said.

Simi Valley is about 35 miles west of Los Angeles. The city of 100,000 is often classified as one of the safest cities for its size in the country based on crime reports, and is home to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.
