Editor’s note: By the definition that the FBI uses to determine it, this shooting is technically a mass shooting. And our hearts break for the victims, their families and our community for getting caught up in this seemingly wholly American tradition of loved ones taken too soon by gun violence. We are sorry for your loss. We are sorry for all of our loss.
SOMERS ⏤ A shooting at Somers House has left three people dead, others injured and
