A new massacre in the American West leaves three dead

A new drama, following a shooting. Around a grocery store in Yakita, a city of 97,000 inhabitants two hours drive from Seattle, at least three people died around 3:30 am, shot dead.

The suspect is on the run and “poses a danger to the population”, explained to the press Matt Murray, the local police chief, specifying that the investigators have “no motive”.

“It seems out of nowhere, there was no apparent conflict between the people,” detailed Matt Murray. According to CCTV from the grocery store, “The man just walked in and started shooting. »

“Then he came out of the store and shot a victim, before crossing the street and shooting another person, apparently,” the policeman summed up.

Three shootings in a few days

The suspect, whose identity remains unknown, then stole a car to flee. This new killing mourns the western United States, already shocked by two killings in California in the Asian community since Saturday.

On Monday, seven farm workers died at two farms in Half Moon Bay, near San Francisco. An eighth person was seriously injured by a 60-year-old named Chunli Zhao.

A former employee of one of the two farms, he was arrested by the authorities with a semi-automatic pistol in his vehicle. On Saturday night, in Monterey Park near Los Angeles, Chinese New Year celebrations turned into carnage when a septuagenarian of Asian origin, Huu Can Tran, killed eleven people, mostly seniors, in a dance hall popular with Asian customers.

He then tried to attack a second ballroom, before committing suicide in his van, surrounded by the police. Investigators were still busy Tuesday to determine the motivations behind these two attacks. After these tragic events, Joe Biden asked Congress to act “quickly” to restrict access to assault rifles.
