Gunfire and hostages taken at California veterans home

The 600-acre campus opened in 1984 and is home to about 1,000 residents, according to CalVet - including veterans of World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Desert Storm, and the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

But Napa County Sheriff John Robertson told reporters that about 80 students were near the area where the hostages were taken but were never in danger.

Larry Kamer told the Associated Press a gunman quietly came into a going-away party and staff meeting at the home and let some leave while keeping others hostage.
