Local outlets, citing police radio chatter, reported that the gunman is armed with an automatic weapon.
Jan Thornton, 51, said her father is a WWII veteran who lives in the skilled nursing section of the facility. Residents and employees were told to take shelter while law enforcement surrounded Building G, where the suspect was thought to be.
Still, she worked about the stress of the lockdown on her father, considering his age and that he has post-traumatic stress disorder and some dementia.
Larry Kamer says his wife, Devereaux Smith, is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Pathway Home. The hostages were believed to be employees at the Yountville Veterans Home who worked with the suspect in the Pathway program, he said. He said he did not know if the shooter was a veteran receiving treatment from the home.
She was at the party Friday morning of 10 to 15 people at the Yountville veterans home. "Napa Valley is a wonderful, attractive place and to know this is in your background, it's unsettling". A shot was reportedly fired.
"We have not made contact with the gunman yet", Robertson said, adding that cops are "approaching this as an active shooter situation".
The Veterans Home posted on their Facebook page that emergency response protocols were activated and they are working with law enforcement.
The Yountville Veterans Home, located in Napa Valley wine country about 50 miles northeast of San Francisco, is the largest such facility in the United States and is home to about 1,000 veterans, according to the home's website. About 1,000 veterans from conflicts spanning from World War II to Operation Enduring Freedom are said to call the facility home.
The Yountville Home also serves the larger Napa Valley community with a 1,200-seat Lincoln Theater, where the Napa Valley Symphony plays, a 9-hole golf course, Recreational Vehicle park, the Borman Field baseball stadium, bowling lanes, swimming pool, and a military Base Exchange branch store.
