The shooting occurred at the Geneva Presbyterian Church located in the town of Laguna Woods, 45 miles (70 kilometers) southwest of Los Angeles, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter on Sunday.

“Multiple victims were shot,” the sheriff’s department said, adding that deputies took one person into custody and recovered a gun.

The Orange County Fire Authority said on Twitter that its firefighters and paramedics were “on scene and treating and transporting multiple patients.”

Images posted on social media appeared to show emergency vehicles lined up outside a church.

“This is disturbing and disturbing news, especially less than a day after a mass shooting in Buffalo,” Democratic Congresswoman Katie Porter, who represents Orange County in Washington, tweeted.

“This should not be our new normal.”
