Another shooting incident has shaken the US. Three people were killed and another three injured on Saturday in the US state of Illinois when a shooter opened fire at a bowling alley, as per the police.
Rockford city police urged people on Twitter to stay away from the area near the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley, as it was an “active situation” and officers were clearing the site.
In a press conference outside the building police chief Dan O’Shea said, “It’s still an ongoing investigation. We do have three individuals that are confirmed deceased.”
He said three other people had been injured from the gunfire and were being treated at local hospitals.
Without specifying if the shooter had a motive, O’Shea said, “We have a person of interest in custody. That’s pretty much where we are at.”
Don Carter Lanes posted a simple message on Facebook after the shooting asking people to “pray please”.
