Chunli Zhao, 66, was arrested Monday after two shootings in separate locations killed seven farm workers on Monday afternoon. In a news conference Tuesday, San Mateo County officials said the shootings were believed to be a case of “workplace violence.”

Wednesday morning, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said the county will be filing a complaint charging Zhao with seven counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, firearm use enhancements for each count and a special circumstance allegation of multiple murder.
