Mass Shootings in the US

Thankfully this attempt seems to have been thwarted, helped by the quick thinking of a wounded sailor. I hope she has a speedy recovery (she has been released from hospital). Abridged details copied from dw.de

FBI says attack on Texas naval base 'terrorism-related'
Federal agents say they are probing whether the shooting at the base Corpus Christi had a terrorist motive. The gunman was shot and killed by guards after wounding a sailor.

At around 6.15 a.m local time (1100 UTC) on Thursday, the assailant, later identified as Adam Alsahli of Corpus Christi, attempted to gain access to the base by opening fire on the sailor who was guarding the security gate.

However, though injured, she was able to roll over and push the button that deployed the gate's security barrier, denying him access.

Alsahli was then shot and killed by other security guards at the base. The injured sailor has since been released from the hospital.

Yep.
 
Well done that man!

'A soldier based in Kansas is being credited with preventing a mass shooting.

'The incident occurred Wednesday morning at the Centennial Bridge, which connects Kansas to Missouri. A man, who has yet to be identified, got out of his vehicle with a rifle and began firing randomly at vehicles on the busy stretch of road. That is when Master Sgt. David Royer, who is based at nearby Fort Leavenworth, sprang into action, the New York Times reported.

'Royer said he was speaking to his fiancee at the time of the shooting when he realized that the man in front of him began shooting. He told his wife to call 911 and proceeded to drive his Chevrolet Silverado into the gunman, pinning him beneath the car. “I wasn’t necessarily frightened,” the 34-year-old soldier said Thursday. “I was shocked that it was happening, and the adrenaline took over, and, with the military training that I’ve received, I took appropriate action and took out the threat.”

'In addition to the gunman, who was seriously injured by the crash, another driver was shot and was taken to the hospital Wednesday in serious condition.'

Looks like its really kicking off across the USA.

'Seven people were shot in Louisville, Kentucky on Thursday night as protests broke out over the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, reports said.

Hundreds of protesters stormed through the street in downtown Louisville calling for justice in the March killing of Taylor, who was shot at least eight times when officers forcibly entered her apartment to serve a warrant. A total of seven people were shot and one was in “critical” condition, according to WDRB-TV.

The shots were fired around 11:30 p.m. as swarms of protesters gathered near Metro Hall. The Louisville Metro Police Department did not say where the gunfire came from. “It is unclear at this time whether or not we will be able to provide additional updates this evening,” an LMPD spokesperson said in a statement.

Taylor, a 26-year-old aspiring nurse, was killed on March 13 when Louisville police officers stormed into her apartment to execute a drug warrant.'
