Two reported dead now :(
A 16-year-old female and a 14-year-old male victim have passed away following a shooting at Saugus High School. Three other victims are in the hospital.

The suspect, a 16-year-old male, shot himself with a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and is in “grave condition.”

If anyone wonders why I don't shop at Walmart, this is one reason:

DUNCAN, Oklahoma – Three people were killed Monday in a shooting outside a Walmart that ended when a bystander pointed a gun at the shooter, police and a witness said.

"We can confirm a shooting in Walmart parking lot," Duncan Police said in a statement. "One female and one male were deceased in (a) car and one male outside of the car. A handgun was found on scene."

Duncan resident Aaron Helton, an Army veteran, said he was at the Walmart at about 9:45 a.m. local time when he heard nine shots and saw the gunman, gun in hand. Another man walked up, put a pistol to the gunman’s head and told him to stop shooting, Helton said.

Helton said he saw the gunman was turning the gun on himself and looked away. Police did not immediately confirm reports that the shooter took his own life.
Walmart shooting: Three dead in shooting in Duncan, Oklahoma

Keep in mind this is after 22 were shot at an El Paso Walmart earlier this year.

And then this three days ago in Florida:

And this in Georgia in October:

I'm going to stop looking. I'm up to 27 people and I'm not halfway through the year.

Not that I'm blaming Walmart really. Its just the new American town square.

Officer, 3 Civilians and 2 Suspects Dead in Jersey City Shootout
Law enforcement sources told NBC New York surveillance video shows the duo shoot a Hasidic man on the street and then run into the store, where they began firing at the victims inside. The suspects were armed with long guns and plenty of ammo, and had a bomb-making materials inside the truck, officials said.
Law enforcement officials initially believed the incident was not terror- or hate-related, despite it occurring in a Jewish neighborhood. However, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted later in the night that the "the active shooters targeted the location they attacked." He added that there are no further threats, but the community "may see additional police resources" in the coming days and weeks.

Loads of tossers in the states claiming they would have shot the London Bridge terrorist he only killed people because we aren't allowed to carry guns.
Not Appreciating under us laws he could have been tooled up with an ak47 that could easily modified to fire fully automatic and a 75 round drum mag plus a couple of handguns:(.
Your glock if you were carrying would be at a, serious disadvantage against a terrorist rather than some saddo with a broken fuse :(

An assailant involved in a prolonged firefight in Jersey City, N.J., that left six people dead, including one police officer, had published anti-Semitic and anti-police posts online and investigators believe the attack was motivated by those sentiments, a law enforcement official familiar with the case said on Wednesday.

The official said the names of the two suspects were David Anderson and Francine Graham. Mr. Anderson appeared to have a connection to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, which is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy group that tracks such movements.

The extent of Mr. Anderson’s involvement in that group remains unclear, the official said. The Black Hebrew Israelites have no connection with mainstream Judaism.
