Shooter takes three hostages at California veterans' home

The California Highway Patrol was responding on Friday to an incident at a veterans' home in Napa Valley after local media said there were reports of shots fired and a possible hostage situation. The Napa County Sheriff's Office reported that a shot had been fired, but there were no immediate reports of any casualties.

There were no reported injuries, a Napa County Fire spokesman said. Robert Nacke said he had little information to share for this "very fluid and dynamic situation".

The FBI is involved in the negotiation process.

The home has been in contact the California Highway Patrol, which provides public safety help because the home is a state facility, Cusator said. Thornton said her 96-year-old father - a WWII fighter pilot - was inside a hospital wing and she had reached one of his friends who said he was safe.
