Jan Thornton of Vallejo is among hundreds of relatives anxious about their loved ones at a Northern California veterans home that was locked down after reports of an active shooter. But, she says she was able to talk to one of his friends, who is also locked down, and that he told her that her father is safe. The home has been on lock down since and those in the area have been asked to shelter in place. An employee at the veterans home told her to close and lock her door. "We're in lockdown in the MSC Building".

The neighboring Vintners Golf Club has cleared the golf course of golfers due to the incident.

Yountville Elementary School was on lockdown briefly.

The Veterans Home of California-Yountville's website says it is the largest veterans' home in the United States, inhabited by around 1,000 "aged or disabled veterans". About 1,000 veterans from conflicts spanning from World War II to Operation Enduring Freedom are said to call the facility home.
