SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities on Sunday identified the two people killed when a man walked into a Southern California fast food restaurant with two handguns and opened fire on his stepdaughter's family.
Alex Trujillo, 33, and his son Adrian, 6, were killed when Jimmy Schlager entered a Del Taco in San Bernardino and opened fire Saturday afternoon, the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department said in a statement.
Trujillo's wife, 29, and the couple's other child, a 5-year-old boy, were also injured in the shooting. They were being treated at Loma Linda University Medical Center. Hospital spokesman Herbert Atienza described the woman's condition as fair and the child's condition as serious.
The 56-year-old Schlager shot himself at the restaurant and died at an area hospital.
The restaurant reopened Sunday afternoon and friends and family created a makeshift memorial outside with flowers, cards and pictures.
The table where the family had sat was removed, and gunshot marks remained on the seats and wall, the Riverside Press-Enterprise said.
Authorities have said Alex Trujillo's wife was Schlager's stepdaughter. Investigators have been looking into their relationship to determine a motive for the shooting.
The woman's mother was married to Schlager and died several years ago.
Schlager, who is from Lancaster in northern Los Angeles County, had a long criminal record running from 1972 to 1999 that included theft, drunken driving and assault with a deadly weapon. A co-worker took out a restraining order on him in 2006, police said.
Police said between five and seven employees and several other customers were in the restaurant, but the gunman singled out the four victims in the shooting, leaving bullet holes and broken glass inside.
Officials said the attack on the family was one of the worst recent crime scenes in San Bernardino, a city of about 200,000 people about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
