The US state of California is reeling from its second mass shooting in days after a man shot dead seven former co-workers south of San Francisco.
The attacks took place in the coastal city of Half Moon Bay.
The victims were all Chinese-American farm workers.
Suspect, 61-year old Zhao Chunli, was arrested after driving to a police station.
It comes as the state mourns the death of 11 at Monterey Park – about six hours south east of Half Moon Bay – during Lunar New Year celebrations.
California Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted that he was at a hospital meeting with victims of the earlier mass shooting when he was pulled away to be briefed about the second attack, describing it as “tragedy upon tragedy”.
The latest bloodshed to hit the state took place at two farms around the Half Moon Bay community.
Four victims of the shooting attack were discovered at a mushroom farm while the other three were later found at a nearby trucking business.
An eighth victim is being treated in hospital and is in a critical condition.
