America is counting its dead again. In San Bernardino, California, there was a shooting near a golf course. Fox News reports that at least 12 people died. Responsible for the massacre were supposedly three heavily armed men in military-style clothing. The commando fled on a black SUV. Special police units started to hunt for them right afterwards.
Images on TV showed at least thirty hostages coming out of the building which was assaulted just before 12 a.m. local time. Everything happened in a medical center where people with disabilities are treated. The local media reported that the victims have been killed inside the building. “A gunman walked into the medical center and began to shoot. “I saw bodies on the ground”, a witness who managed to escape says. The woman survived because she locked herself in an office.
After having evacuated people, police made them get on several buses to a safe place where they were to be interrogated. The police wants to be sure that among the evacuated there are no suspects.
This is only the last episode of a long string of murders. Among the latest, we remind you what happened last November 23, a shooting in which 16 people were wounded. It broke out between two groups in a park in New Orleans, Louisiana, where hundreds of people had gathered for a non-authorized block feast. Yesterday, during his speech at COP21 in Paris, President Obama said: “Mass shootings happen only in America”. He refered to the shooting which took place inside an abortion clinic in Colorado Springs. “My hope is that, once again, these events – he added – will stimulate a debate on arms control between the Congress and the States”.
