Eight people were killed Wednesday when a gunman opened fire at a Seal Beach beauty salon, the deadliest shooting in Orange County history:

Michelle Marie Fournier, 48, a licensed cosmetologist and stylist at Salon Meritage, the scene of the shooting. She was formerly married to the suspected shooter, Scott Dekraai. Lived in Los Alamitos.

Laura Lee Elody, 46, a stylist at the salon. She lived in Huntington Beach. Her mother, Hattie Stretz, 73, is the lone shooting victim to survive.

Randy Lee Fannin, 63, owner of Salon Meritage. He and his wife had operated the business for about a decade; customers said they were the perfect "tag team" partners. Lived in Murrieta.

Michelle Daschback Fast, a salon employee whose husband is a team manager with the Beach Futbol Club. Her daughter is a player on the soccer team. She lived in Seal Beach.

Christy Lynn Wilson, a salon employee and mother of three. A Cerritos resident who made jewelry and paddleboarded in her spare time. She was one of Fournier's close friends.

Victoria Ann Buzzo, 54, a stylist who lived in Laguna Beach with her husband.

David Caouette, 64, a retired car salesman and ardent off-roader who was shot outside the salon in his parked Land Rover. Friends said he was probably at the popular shopping center where the salon is located to get lunch. He lived in Seal Beach.

Lucia Bernice Kondas, 65, a Huntington Beach resident.
