Over the weekend, at least nine people died from gun violence in back-to-back shootings across the country -- in Illinois, Texas, Wisconsin, Ohio, Nebraska and Louisiana.

At least nine people lost their lives in back-to-back shootings over the weekend.

In the age of active shooters, a new mantra has emerged: 'Run. Hide. Fight.'By the end of the weekend, at least nine more people had died from gun violence in back-to-back shootings across the country -- in Illinois, Texas, Wisconsin, Ohio, Nebraska and Louisiana. At least 10 more were wounded. Since March 16, when eight people were killed and one wounded in shootings at three Atlanta-area spas, at least 50 mass shootings have been reported in the United States. CNN defines a mass shooting as a shooting with four or more casualties -- dead or wounded -- excluding the shooter. Some of the shootings this weekend fell short of that definition. But together, they underscored the fact the United States faces not just the Covid-19 pandemic, but a gun violence epidemic, as well.ChicagoRead MoreA 7-year-old girl was killed in a shooting in Chicago on Sunday afternoon that also left a 29-year-old man seriously injured, according to Chicago Police spokesperson Anthony Spicuzza.In a statement emailed to CNN, Spicuzza said the two were in a vehicle near the parking lot of a business when they were hit at about 4:18 p.m.The girl was struck multiple times and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, the statement said. The man was hit in the torso and was hospitalized in serious condition.The shooting is under investigation.

Police described the incident as an isolated"domestic situation." Austin police, fire and emergency medical services responded at about 11:42 a.m. to the city's Great Hills Trail and Rain Creek Parkway area, where they found three people suffering gunshot wounds, officials said.EMS, police and fire officials responded to a shooting incident in Austin, Texas.Police identified the suspect as 41-year-old Stephen Nicholas Broderick, a former Travis County Sheriff's Office detective who was charged last year with sexual assault of a child, a sheriff's office spokesperson told CNN. The victims -- two women and a man -- knew Broderick, Austin Police Interim Chief Joseph Chacon said. A child was involved in the incident but was located and is safe.Broderick resigned from the sheriff's office last year following his arrest in June, and he was was released on bond later that month.He remained at large Sunday evening.Kenosha, WisconsinA shooting at a tavern in southeast Wisconsin early Sunday left three people dead and three others wounded, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office.Gunfire erupted at The Somers House tavern around 12:40 a.m. Sunday, according to Sheriff David G.

Why does CNN promote violence but condemn guns? And you tell us that the killers would surrender their guns 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Well regulated militia? Nope. It's called 'Crime'. Every society has it. Especially if you have a weak justice system. Congrats on finally noticing Inter City Violence, took you about 30 years. Jokes about moving to cities is hearing sirens and gunshots every night.

Weird how those are all red states with little to none gun restrictions. Not a cop shooting, then why would it be in the news, very small article, why, cause you can’t exploit it to make new news out of it, the story dies, won’t be televised, will maybe make local paper but that’s it. Those people probably have family as well.

Wow the states have really gone mad,,,well keep fighting for your 2nd ammendement really helping the killers,,but atleast you got the 2nd,,,,, Well why don't you report how many were killed by hand or how many were killed by use of a knife because those numbers are much higher than those killed by guns !! And doesn't fit your agenda

And in Texas, our lawmakers are trying to make it even easier for people to carry handguns, without a permit, background check, or any training, into places like schools, hospitals, and bars🤬Texans hate the idea, but they’re doing it anyway. txlege TexasSenateGOP MomsDemand

AstraZeneca says U.S. data load for U.S. COVID-19 vaccine approval very bigAstraZeneca (AZN.L) is working as fast as possible to compile data on its COVID-19 vaccine to apply for U.S. approval but the dataset is very big, executives said on Friday as the drugmaker faces delays to its submission.

Biden’s America. Can you feel the unity? United Shootings of America🙄😞 So much to 'the land of the free'🧐 Biden has this country in a mess! Lots of mass shootings after he took office! No authority, to sleepy to do anything! No gun control to help with the amount of guns. No free healthcare to deal with the mental health issue. So basically if you’re in this country just living you are forced to live life with bullet proof armor on just because some klan members can’t let go! 👍🏽

Far more people died from gun violence shootings over the weekend then 9. Those 9 are from mass shootings which are three or more at once by one gunman. Una go kill una self finish for that country if una govt don't do something about the gun violence. Not to worry, the democrats have an answer for this. Not the right answer, but they will keep on pushing anyway.

We are rapidly descending into the third world countries of the 80s and 90s where vigilantes roam the streets, people fight over politics, ethnic disputes. AmericanTerrorism will soon start affecting economy as people stay home. First steps to change...quality education & jobs. Redneck states Republicans in red states are passing “ shooter sanctuary “ laws for criminals Republicans are helping criminals

What Wall Street Is Telling Us About the U.S. Economic OutlookInvestors are betting on a reasonably strong economic rebound that can withstand tighter monetary policies, with sustained inflation hovering around the Fed’s 2% target inflation. Not on a COVID variant that shuts down the economy? lol... next joke please... that was a very good joke... So we should brace ourselves for a downturn......

Sad .. no regard for human life Welcome ti the Biden world.... The media is pushing the gun topic hard. very bad in a country like US, no guarantee for human life We lost our American long ago....God's protection will never leave us We shouldnt be doing politics when it comes gun violence that takes innocent lives.
