#StopGunViolence! General United States

Gun Violence at Manufacturing Plant in MD Leaves 3 dead, 1 injured

Almost every single day, Americans die from gun violence and lawmakers are at a tug-of-war on gun law reform. Less than a month after the Uvalde elementary school shooting killed 21 people, the House of Representatives has finally passed a law restricting gun sales to those over the age of 21.
On Thursday, three people were killed in a shooting at a manufacturing plant in Smithsburg, Maryland, and a state trooper was shot by the shooter. The suspect is at large, and the state trooper was transported from the scene to the hospital due to injury.
According to Gov. Larry Hogan at a conference, he stated, “The State Police responded, pursued the suspect, the suspect fired and shot the state trooper in the shoulder, who then returned fire and shot him back,”.
“Gunshots were exchanged between the suspect and the Trooper. Both were injured and transported for medical treatment,” the release says.
This incident is the 254th mass shooting this year, according to CNN.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Carly Hose said the suspect was a man, but she didn’t yet know other details about the shooting, like whether the shooter was an employee of Columbia Machine.

The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. ET, authorities said. Columbia Machine is located about 75 miles west of Baltimore.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives office in Baltimore and the FBI each said agents are assisting the sheriff’s office with the incident.
