Calif. Shooting Came After Custody Fight

The shooting at an Orange County, Calif., hair salon that killed eight people Wednesday was the result of a custody dispute between a hairstylist and her former husband. While police have not released the gunman’s name, the Los Angeles Times says it is Scott Dekraai. He stormed into the salon at 1:30 p.m. looking for his ex-wife, Michelle Fournier. The couple divorced in 2007, and Dekraai was awarded custody at the time. It’s unclear if Fournier was killed in the attack—the deadliest in Orange County history.
