"We responded this evening to a traffic congestion and during that congestion, numerous shots were fired," the spokesman said. One...

    Gunfire at a backyard party killed two people and wounded 14 others early Saturday in Rochester, New York, a city that has been roiled in recent weeks by outrage over the suffocation death of Daniel Prude. A man and woman, estimated to be in their late teens or early 20s, were killed, Simmons said. None of the wounded people were believed to have life-threatening injuries. They were being treated at two area hospitals. (snip) The acting chief said no suspects were in custody, but there was no reason to believe the neighborhood was unsafe.

    'Dead bodies don't count unless they are politically useful dead bodies' The single biggest U.S. mass shooting of 2020 occurred over the weekend in Washington, but because the story didn't "help the Biden campaign," it went largely unreported on, Tucker Carlson said Monday. "Twenty-one people were shot in this single incident ... more than half of them were women. One was a D.C. Police officer. It was the single biggest mass shooting in America this year and yet you probably heard nothing about it," the "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host said.

    A mass shooting happened outside a Chicago funeral home on Tuesday night, but viewers who rely on CNN and MSNBC were unaware of the breaking news as the liberal networks declined to cover the story as it unfolded. The gunfire -- extending a summer of violence in the nation's third-largest city -- left at least 15 people wounded and drew new criticism of the city's leaders, who have pushed back against President Trump's call for federal intervention into big-city lawlessness. A search of transcripts revealed that CNN and MSNBC did not mention the mass shooting in Chicago through midnight ET.

There was “active gunfire from inside the building,” Lt. Jimmy Bolt said in an initial statement, and Lewis said all the shots were fired inside. Both Lewis and Bolt initially said 12 people had been wounded — with at least four in critical condition, Lewis said...

    International Firearms Ownership and Homicides In 2016 Adam Lankford of the University of Alabama, published a paper examining the distribution of mass shooting/mass shooters around the world. The published result concluded the United States had a disproportionate number of these rare events.  Lankford's study showed the United States had 5% of the world's population, but 31% of the the mass shootings/mass shooters, as defined by Lankford.  It has become clear that Lankford was looking almost exclusively at single perpetrators, though he included about 2% where two people were involved. Lankford excluded terrorist attacks he identified as “sponsored” terrorism, but included...

    On the evening of February 19, 2020, in the west German city of Hanau, a severely disturbed 43-year-old German male opened fire in two separate bars frequented by persons of non-German origin, particularly Turkish, killing nine innocent people. It appears that all the victims were non-Germans, either immigrants or first-generation born of immigrants. The murderer fled the scene, returned to his apartment, and turned the gun on his 72-year-old mother and then on himself. Eleven dead. The perpetrator, Tobias Rathjien, apparently never married, had posted an extensive internet manifesto before his evil deeds and, possibly, a video, where his crazed...

The mall was shut down and the street outside was closed while the authorities tried to arrest the gunman and rescue shoppers inside. Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Gen. Kongcheep Tantrawanich identified...
