May 9 Reuters - A man fatally shot six people including his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself early on Sunday at a birthday party in Colorado Springs, Colorado, but did not fire on traumatized children who were present inside a trailer at a mobile home park. Police arrived to find six people dead plus a seventh who was seriously wounded and died after being taken to a hospital, a police statement said.
A motive has yet to be determined. The shooting happened within the Canterbury Manufactured Home Community, a mobile home park of some trailers and largely Latino residents on the southeast side of town, near the Colorado Springs airport, about 70 miles km south of Denver. Police blocked off the area, where a mobile crime lab was parked near the home. A small group of adults stood nearby, some of them audibly sobbing, along with a small child.
Freddie Marquez, 33, said his mother-in-law was one of the victims and that he was at the party but left around p. Some time after midnight, he received a call from the son of one of the women at the party, who was crying on the phone. The Denver Post quoted neighbor Yenifer Reyes as saying she was awakened by the sound of gunfire. Then I started hearing sirens,"Reyes told the newspaper. She said she saw police take children out of the trailer and put them into a squad car.
The massacre was the latest in a resurgence of mass shootings in the United States after such occurrences seemed to recede during the height of coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Among the incidents this year was one in Boulder, Colorado, where a year-old man has been charged with killing 10 people in a March 22 shooting spree at a supermarket about 30 miles 50 km northwest of Denver. Colorado was also the state where two other deadly rams took place, both in the Denver area: the shooting at Columbine High School that killed 15 people including the two perpetrators, and the shooting in an Aurora movie theater that killed 12 people and wounded about The Aurora shooter is serving a life sentence.
But he faces serious opposition from gun rights advocates including Republicans and some Democrats who cite the U. Constitution's protection of gun ownership rights. Police said they withheld releasing details of the shooting for several hours "in order to properly and respectfully notify family members of the deceased and ensure support was in place. The names of the victims will be released later, the statement said.
