Nation/world in brief: Officials identify shooting victims

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – Authorities on Sunday identified the two people killed when a man walked into a Southern California fast-food restaurant with two handguns and opened fire on his stepdaughter’s family.

Alex Trujillo, 33, and his son Adrian, 6, were killed when Jimmy Schlager entered a Del Taco in San Bernardino and opened fire Saturday afternoon, the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department said in a statement.

Trujillo’s wife, 29, and the couple’s other child, a 5-year-old boy, were also injured in the shooting. They were being treated at Loma Linda University Medical Center. Hospital spokesman Herbert Atienza described the woman’s condition as fair and the child’s condition as serious.

Schlager, 56, shot himself at the restaurant and died at an area hospital.

Authorities have said Alex Trujillo’s wife was Schlager’s stepdaughter. The woman’s mother was married to Schlager and died several years ago.

Season’s first

hurricane forms

MEXICO CITY, Mexico – Hurricane Celia howled toward the open ocean, away from Mexico’s Pacific coast Sunday.

The first hurricane of the 2010 season had maximum sustained winds of about 75 mph and was expected to gradually strengthen.

A Category 1 hurricane, Celia was centered about 365 miles south of Acapulco on Sunday afternoon, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

The storm was moving westward at about 7 mph. That course would take Celia into the open Pacific, and forecasters said there was no immediate threat to land.
