In a press conference, this afternoon, the sheriff's department shared few other details.
The shootings took place at 1:30 a.m. inside the center as patients slept. Deputies confirm that the dead victim is male. The surviving victims of the shooting were identified as 32-year-old Anthony Dominguez Mansapit, an employee of the facility and 30-year-old Brittney Kehaulani McCann of Marin City, who has a dating relationship with the suspect. They both remained at Marin General Hospital.
It's still not clear if the shootings took place in one room, or whether the suspect knew his way around and stalked his victims. The sheriff's department has not said how many shots were fired, or the type of weapon.
