Gunman kills two at Missouri school before being killed be shot


WASHINGTON | A gunman killed two people at a Missouri high school Monday morning before being fatally shot by law enforcement, local police said.

A grown woman and a young girl died and several other people were injured, said St. Louis Police Chief Mike Sack.

Officers, who arrived after an emergency call, exchanged shooting with the assailant, who was shot and succumbed to his injuries, according to the same source.

“The suspect appears to be around 20 years old” and his identity has not yet been established. definitively, Sack said.

Shootings, especially in schools, are a scourge in the United States. In May, a teenager killed 19 students and two female teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

Monday, an American teenager, who last year killed four students at his school in Michigan with a gun given to him by his parents, pleaded guilty.
