    The events occurred around 12:30 p.m. local time in the town of Arkabutla, as confirmed by the county sheriff, Brad Lance, who explained, according to local media, that the man entered a store and killed a person with his weapon.

    Minutes later, the police identified the suspect’s car. The agents then embarked on a chase to catch up with him. Finally, they stopped him.

    The latest episode of gun violence in the United States comes four days after the murder of three people in a shooting at Michigan State University.. Five other people were injured. The suspect committed suicide while the police tried to hunt him down.

    To be considered a mass shooting, a shooting must reach a minimum of four people, not including the attacker, and that these are not members of the same family. It is also taken into account that it occurs in a public place. According to the Gun Violence Archive organization, there have been 75 mass shootings so far this year. The account comes out to 1.6 a day. This week alone there have been six in places like Baltimore, Pittsburgh or Luisville.
