Six people were killed in a mass shooting in the city of Plymouth in southwest England on Thursday evening, in an incident described by the British Home Secretary as "shocking".
Two females and three males, including the suspect, died from gunshot wounds at the scene of the incident, the Devon and Cornwall Police said in a statement. Another female died a short time later in hospital, the police added.
Sharron Turner, 57, who lives behind the scene of the shooting, told The Times newspaper that a gunman had "kicked in" the front door of a semi-detached house before shooting a young mother and her daughter, who was aged about five. Turner said she had been told that the man, who was dressed in black and grey, was armed with a semi-automatic weapon.
After the attack, the gunman escaped through a park behind the house and shot two dog walkers, The Times reported.

Feral descendants of General Cornwallis again.
How’s that possible? UK has very strict gun laws!
Why don’t these people defend themselves?! Oh that’s right - they can’t.
But I thought guns were banned in the UK.
Only for bobbies.
PS - yes I do even when walking the dog it’s perfectly permissible
Impossible. They don’t have guns over there.
That being said, very sad. I have a handful of friends over there (one of them a goth musician who is a dead ringer for Christopher Lee and a stealth conservative) who are heartbroken that the country of their birth no longer exists.
I was once talking to him about my days as a co-ed in London 30 years ago and he said, “That London no longer exists. That ENGLAND no longer exists...”
Drug crime and the Religion of Peace are big factors.
The sun has set.
...or the monster Cromwell.
THEY NEED SOME GUN CONTROL OVER THERE!
Impossible. Guns are illegal in the UK :P
I visited England for the first time in Sept. of 1976 , alone , and stayed 3 weeks . Was in London for about a week and then drove all over the country . Never had a problem or felt unsafe day or night and I did walk through some somewhat “ dodgy “ areas of London . Between 1976-1983 I visited 6 times ( with various friends and one time with my younger sister ) for a total of 13 weeks . It sure was a different country then . Couldn’t pay me to go there now .
All Cromwell did was depose a King. That’s always a good thing to do.
I guess you don’t read Irish History.
I hear you. Even in London, I was safe walking back from the clubs on Oxford Road to the house in the West End. Now... well, they made their decisions. The price will be paid.
I just wish I could have gone back for one more trip.
Banning guns doesn’t seem to be working. Time to ban illegal guns as well.
Story can’t be true. England has such strong gun control laws that most of the cops are unarmed.
Now they need the monster Cromwell, probably the only one who could set things right !
Liar. It’s illegal to own a gun in England.
