Six Tongan men and a woman arrested in connection with shooting in US

    San Mateo, CA – Police and law enforcement authorities have arrested a Tongan woman and six men across California after a shooting outside of a local San Mateo bar in the 500 block of S. Norfolk Street.

    The arrests were made in the counties of Alameda, Orange, San Joaquin, and San Mateo. All seven criminals were taken into custody and search warrants were served.
