This is the second successful and third attempted mass shooting in recent weeks. Ten people were killed in a racially-motivated attack on grocery store in a Black neighborhood in Buffalo, New York on May 14. The following day one person was killed in an attempted mass shooting at a church meeting of Taiwanese Christians in Southern California by a shooter who was motivated by pro-Communist China sentiments. Parishioners fought and stopped the gunman.
