One person died and five others were injured early this Saturday in a shooting that occurred at a meeting in a suburb of Seattle, in the state of Washington.
Although the investigation is ongoing, local police presume that a dispute outside the meeting led to the deadly shooting, an incident that adds to the numerous mass shootings that the United States has suffered this year.
The count. According to the authorities’ report, the incident happened around 1:00 am in Rentos, a suburb located about 11 miles southeast of Seattle. Immediately, officers were called and reported to the 100 block of Logan Avenue South.
- Once there, the police found multiple victims. The injured were treated at the scene, while the deceased was declared at the scene.
- It is estimated that more than one person fired a weapon.
Why is it relevant? Incidents of this type are part of everyday life in the United States. The Gun Violence Archive revealed that the country is experiencing more than one mass shooting a day as authorities struggle to curb gun violence. In California, for example, a bill was signed this Friday that allows civilians to sue manufacturers and distributors of ghost weapons.
- This is SB 1327, which allows residents of the state to file lawsuits against manufacturers, sellers or distributors of illegal assault weapons or ghost weapons.
- The act in which the governor of California signed the new law on weapons took place at Santa Monica College,
- where in 2013 a mass shooting took place that left six dead, including the shooter.
- The attacker used an AR-15 assault rifle built using illegally purchased parts to carry out his crime.
- The news was received positively by gun control advocates.
