Azusa Police Chief Steve Hunt has told the Los Angeles Times that the shooter’s motives are not yet known, but the shooting seems to have been concentrated on the surrounding residential area rather than the polling booth itself. Police are saying there is no evidence that the shooting is directly related to election day.

The incident occurred at approximately 2pm Tuesday local time.
