(AP) — The number of people killed by a gunman at a California rail yard has risen to nine. The Santa Clara County coroner’s office late Wednesday night identified the victim as 49-year-old Alex Ward Fritch. He had been wounded in the attack in San Jose.
The assailant was a transit employee who killed himself as law enforcement rushed in Wednesday morning. The ex-wife of Samuel Cassidy says even more than a decade ago, he was often resentful of his work. It’s the 15th mass killing in the U.S. this year. All have been shootings. Eighty-seven people have died.
