On June 2, a man opened fire in the parking lot of a church in Iowa, killing two women before turning the gun on himself, according to local authorities.
The Iowa shooting took place not long after President Joe Biden delivered a primary address on gun violence in the wake of recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York; Uvalde, Texas; and Tulsa, Oklahoma, Reuters reports.
Another shooting took place on Thursday in the city of Racine, Wisconsin. This time, the incident resulted in the injuries of two people who were attending a funeral, according to Reuters.
One Racine victim was treated and released from a local hospital, while the other was airlifted to a Milwaukee hospital, Sergeant Kristi Wilcox said. There were no arrests made.
Story County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Nicholas Lennie stated the shooting in Iowa took place outside of the Cornerstone Church located to the east of the city of Ames. A religious ceremony was in progress when the catastrophe occurred there.
According to Lennie, when the sheriff’s officers arrived at the location, they discovered that all three people had already passed. He explained that he could not reveal the identity of the person who had passed away or the nature of any possible relationship that may have existed between them.
