America: Firing has once again come to the fore in America. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a Natalie building on the St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to Tulsa police, an unidentified assailant shot and killed four people. Upon receiving the information, the police rushed to the spot and opened fire.
Arms license laws in the United States often lead to shootings in which innocent people are killed. On May 24, 23 people, including 19 children, were killed in a shooting at Uwalde Primary School. Expressing concern, President Joe Biden said it was time to take action.
President Joe Biden was also notified of the shooting at the Tulsa hospital complex. A statement issued by the White House on Wednesday stated that it was monitoring the situation. Tulsa police said in a Facebook post that an unidentified rifleman broke into the Natalie building and opened fire indiscriminately, killing four people.
The school was shot a day earlier
Shooting incidents are on the rise in America. The attack took place at a graduation convocation in New Orleans on Tuesday, a day before the attack in Tulsa. An elderly woman was killed and two others were injured. Earlier, 23 people, including 19 children, were killed in a shooting at Rob Primary School in Uvalde.
Biden consulted with the PM of New Zealand
It may be recalled that US President Biden had yesterday consulted with New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern to curb the rising number of shootings in the country. Biden took the advice of Ardern in the wake of the crackdown on the New Zealand government in 2019 after 51 people were killed in a shooting targeting Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand. Guns were also purchased by the government, along with a ban on the sale of Army rifles in New Zealand.
