Gun violence has increased dramatically in the United States recently.
Almost all incidents of violence such as this latest attack result in loss of life.
According to the Gun Violence Archive, gun violence kills about 40,000 people a year in the United States.
The media says gun violence in the United States has become an epidemic,
and this North American country is in a particularly dire chapter of the epidemic.
The worst case of gun violence in the United States in recent times occurred last May.
On May 24, 21 people, including 19 children, were killed in a gun attack at an elementary school in Uval, Texas.
