A farm-worker has been charged with murder in connection to a deadly shooting in California that left seven people dead.
- The Half Moon Bay attack is now believed to be a case of workplace violence.
- In a brief court appearance yesterday, the suspect, a Chinese national, was formally charged with seven counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.
- A criminal complaint against him also alleges "special circumstances.”
- Under California law, defendants who are convicted of murder with "special circumstances" are eligible for the death penalty, although the state declared a moratorium on executions in 2019.
