12 killed, 49 wounded in weekend series of US shootings


The series of shooting events comprised deaths in New Jersey, South Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, and Minnesota. Source- Hindustan Times A dozen people got murdered and about 50 injured in a series of shootings across the United States over the weekend, after President Joe Biden last month stamped the country's gun violence as an "epidemic." The spate of shooting incidents included casualties in New Jersey, South Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, and Minnesota. To sum it up, the attacks claimed 12 lives and wounded at least 49 others.

New Jersey Two people died when gunfire erupted at a house party in Camden, New Jersey on Saturday night, and at least 12 people were injured, according to police.
South Carolina In South Carolina, one 14-year-old girl was killed and 14 people injured at a concert.
Atlanta Police in Atlanta, Georgia, found three gunshot victims early Sunday after reacting to a call about shots fired. All three victims were declared dead at the scene, US media reported.
Ohio Three others were murdered and eight wounded outside a bar in Youngstown, Ohio, early Sunday morning, while a 16-year-old girl was killed and seven people injured in a park in Columbus.

A deadly shooting also occurred in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the night before supporters and relatives of George Floyd, held a march Sunday on the first anniversary of his death. One person got assassinated and eight injured, with one victim in critical condition. Gun sales lunged at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Overall, 2020 was one of the most violent years in the United States in decades. So far this year, there have been at least 200 mass shootings in the United States, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
