Multiple Shooting in Georgia Leaves Four Dead, Including Attacker

At least four people died Thursday, including the attacker, after a multiple shooting in Moultrie, a town in Georgia, in the southeastern United States.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) confirmed the news to local media CBS News and the Colquitt County coroner, C. Verlyn Brock, said that one of the dead is the attacker, who killed his mother and grandmother in their respective homes.

He then moved to a McDonald’s establishment where he shot and killed a female assistant manager and then killed himself. The assailant has not yet been identified by authorities.

GBI had previously reported that “multiple incidents” involving fatalities were being investigated.

The event comes a day after another shooting in the city of Atlanta, also in Georgia, after a man allegedly killed one person and wounded four others, before being arrested several hours later.

The United States has suffered at least 192 mass shootings so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which defines mass shootings as those in which four or more people are killed, not including the perpetrator of the attack.
