It is not the first of its kind shooting that has taken place in the USA. Just a month back one of the biggest massacres in the country took place when a gunmen shot down 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack at a nightclub in the Florida city of Orlando. The hate crime took place inside Pulse a gay nightclub.
In recent time gunshot cases had increased around the world as many people were injured and shoot down when a group of gunmen attacked a restaurant in the diplomatic quarter of Bangladesh some time back. The massacre was also committed in the name of religion.
