SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the gunman who killed nine co-workers at a California rail yard had 12 guns and 22,000 rounds of ammunition at his home that he set on fire.

Officials said Friday that the shooter, Samuel James Cassidy, had coordinated a fire at his house to coincide with the violence Wednesday at the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority in San Jose.

The Santa Clara County sheriff's office said in a news release that a search of Cassidy's home also turned up multiple cans of gasoline and suspected Molotov cocktails.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
