3 Killed In US Mall Shooting, Gunman Shot Dead By Armed Civilian
Mark Myers, the mayor of Greenwood, Indiana, said that the gunman had been shot dead by “an armed individual.”
Indiana: Three people were killed and another three injured on Sunday at a mall in the US state of Indiana, officials said, the latest in a spate of gun violence in the country.
“We experienced a mass shooting this evening at the Greenwood Park Mall,” Mark Myers, the mayor of Greenwood, Indiana, said in a statement.
“We have three fatalities at this time and three others injured.”
Myers said that the gunman had been shot dead by “an armed individual.”
The Greenwood police shared a post on their Facebook page asking for witnesses to the shooting to contact the department with information.
That shooting followed two massacres in May that saw 10 Black people gunned down at an upstate New York supermarket, and 19 children and two teachers killed at an elementary school in Texas.
The recent surge in gun violence has reignited the divisive debate over firearm regulation. A committee of the US House of Representatives is set to vote this week for the first time in nearly 20 years on a bill that would ban assault weapons.
