WASHINGTON, D.C. (Newsource) – The White House is demanding Congress take action on gun violence after yet another school shooting.
On Monday Saint Louis Police said two people were killed, and six were injured, when a gunman opened fire at Central Visual and Performing Arts high school. The suspected shooter was also killed.
White House Press Secretary says the U.S. Senate needs to act before it’s too late for more families.
“In the wake of Newton, Parkland, Buffalo, Uvalde and countless other shootings and communities across the country, we need additional action to stop the scourge of gun violence. Every day that the Senate fails to send assault weapons ban to the president’s desk or waits to take other common sense actions, is a day too late for our families and communities impacted by gun violence,” said White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre.
The shooter appeared to be 20-years-old and was using a “long gun.” The school was closed and the doors were locked. It’s unclear how the shooter entered the building.
