Some of the wounded remain in critical condition in the hospital. The criminal, armed with an assault rifle, was destroyed by police officers.
After the tragedy in Alabama in April, where were injured 28 people, Reuters said incidents of mass shootings have become “commonplace” for the US. The head of the White House, amid multiple incidents of mass shootings, called several times for a ban on assault weapons.
