Police say three dead, two wounded in restaurant shooting

The Associated Press

PISMO BEACH, Calif.- A gunman opened fire inside a crowded Denny's restaurant during lunch hour Wednesday, killing two people and wounding two before taking his own life, police said.

"There could have been 30 or 40 people inside. As the shootings occurred, people were fleeing the restaurant, hiding in bathrooms," Cmdr. Jeff Norton said.

Police said they did not know the motive for the shootings

The names of the gunman and the victims were not immediately released. Nor was the condition of the wounded.

Pismo Beach is in San Luis Obispo County, a 3 1/2-hour drive northwest of Los Angeles.
