Deadly Weekend: Nation sees violent rise in mass shootings

This past weekend, America saw massive violence with shootings from coast-to-coast in New York, California, and Houston, FOX 2 Detroit reported.

Detroit also faced its share of violence as three people (two juveniles and one adult) were arrested recently in quadruple shooting on Detroit’s east side, according to Local 4, which the police chief called “horrible.

“It’s unfortunate,” Detroit Police Chief James White said. “Whatever conflict they were having not only did they put their lives in jeopardy but the residents’ lives in jeopardy.”

New York Governor Kathy Hochul spoke during a Buffalo shooting update over the weekend calling out the violence.

“An attack on one is an attack on all,” the governor said one day after a gunman killed 10 people and injured three others in an attack that was motivated by race, according to the report.

In Buffalo at a local supermarket, an 18-year-old white man killed 10 people while livestreaming the massacre with a helmet camera in a predominantly Black neighborhood.

Per police, the gunman started shooting in the parking lot and then moved inside the store. 

In California, churchgoers stopped a gunman after a deadly shooting when the man opened fire during a lunch event at a Southern California church on Sunday. A sheriff official called their intervention an act of “exceptional heroism and bravery,” according to the report.

Houston police also had violent murders over the weekend when two people were killed and three additional individuals were critically injured during a shooting at a flea market in Houston, Texas, according to the report.
