RED BLUFF, Calif. - The shooting at the Walmart Distribution Center on June 27 left the town of Red Bluff in shock.

Louis Wesley Lane crashed his SUV into the center on Highway 99, where the car caught fire and was quickly extinguished. Lane then stepped out with a semi-automatic rifle and shot two people, killing Martin Haro-Lozano and injuring another.

"It's terrible," said Vernon Whinery, a Red Bluff resident.

Red Bluff is a community of about 12,000 people. Action News Now spoke with those who knew at least someone impacted by the shooting.

"I have friends who were just going into their shifts and they got lucky. It's terrible, we're lucky that it wasn't worse," said Whinery.

"Small communities like Red Bluff and Shingletown, this just isn't something that happens," said Red Bluff resident Sandy Bruce. "It does worry me but, he can't hurt anybody else."

The community is still trying to get a grasp of what happened.

"It's really scary, a lot of people in town work there and some of my friends' husbands work there and it's so unsettling," said resident Roxanne Coit-Wootten.
