United States: an individual opens fire on a playground and injures several people, including a child

Steph Deschamps / June 17,

 
The shooting took place in Rochester Hills, a suburb of the city of Detroit, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
 
"The individual parked, got out of his vehicle, approached the playground, opened fire. He reloaded, opened fire, drove off. At this point, it looks very much like a random act," Sheriff Michel Bouchard told reporters. According to him, the shooter "has no connection with the victims »
 
Between nine and ten people were wounded in the shooting, including an eight-year-old child, the sheriff said. A Glock pistol and several empty magazines were found at the scene.
 
"We have an individual, who we believe to be a suspect, surrounded in the vicinity," added Bouchard. Elite police response teams and armoured vehicles were deployed to the scene.
 
With more firearms than inhabitants, the United States has the highest death rate from firearms of any developed country. Shootings are a recurring scourge that successive governments have so far been powerless to curb, as many Americans remain very attached to their guns.
