The incident happened at about 3:45 p.m. PT on Thursday when officers were called reports of shots being fired at the medical clinic. Upon arrival, they found the suspected shooter as well as multiple victims inside the facility.

"Initial reports indicated that a male had fired a gun inside of the business and then turned the gun on himself," police spokesman Larry Hadfield said. Three victims were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, including one person who was injured in a fall.

Police said the suspect had shown up at the clinic and asked to see a doctor, but he was turned away because he didn't have an appointment. He then opened fire. There was no immediate word on his identity or why he was seeking help.

According to the company's website, the center provides a range of services, including pain treatment, massage therapy, acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dietary counseling.
