Multiple injured – US school shooting kills three

Date:

At least three people died in a Missouri school, including the gunman. The former student had previously killed a 16-year-old and a 61-year-old teacher and injured seven people. “It could have been a lot worse,” a police spokesperson said.

The shooter was a 19-year-old who had previously attended school. Police are still trying to find a motive. The gunman was killed in a shootout with police.

The US has long struggled with massive levels of gun violence. Firearms are often readily available in the country. According to the latest data from the health authority CDC, about 20,000 people were shot in 2020 in the US alone – more than 50 a day. Injuries from firearms were the number one cause of death for children and young people in 2020 for the first time – before road accidents.
