Latest Mass Shooting In Gun Crazy Country Leaves 5 Injured In Seattle

Five people were injured on Friday night in Seattle, two critically in the 413th mass shooting in the U.S. this year in our gun-saturated country where this one problem still won’t be solved. So, we’ll just keep watching people getting shot, sometimes children, and do nothing about it.

Two suspects reportedly opened fire at a community outreach event that was taking place in the parking lot.

The Guardian reports:

The five victims included two who were listed in critical condition and three who appeared to be stable. Four victims were taken to hospital, and the fifth received treatment at the scene, Diaz said.

“We know that there’s dozens and dozens of rounds that were fired,” said Diaz, who noted police were not sure of a possible motive.

Diaz added that while Seattle’s number of shootings has fluctuated annually, gun violence has been a perennial issue in the city.

“Right now, we’ve really got to get guns off the streets,” Diaz said.

Seattle’s mayor, Bruce Harrell, said it was a tragedy for gun violence to mar a community event.

“These community leaders are putting literally their lives on the line to protect their own community,” said Harrell, who thanked them as well as police investigators. “These fine officers [are] working with these fine community leaders, trying to protect their babies here, trying to protect our youth.”

Be prepared for an onslaught of ‘thoughts and prayers’ from our elected officials.
