Washington: On Sunday, the police said that in Illinois, USA, a shooter opened fire on a bowling alley, killing three people and injuring three people.
Rockford City Police urged people on Twitter to stay away from the area near the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley because this is a “positive situation” and the police are cleaning the site.
A suspect in his 30s was detained by the police.
The force posted on Twitter shortly after midnight: “37-year-old white male suspect is in custody. There are no other beings sought at this time.”
“It’s still an ongoing investigation. We do have three individuals that are confirmed deceased,” police chief Dan O´Shea earlier told a press conference near the scene of the shooting.
He said that the other three were injured by gunfire and are being treated at the local hospital.
He didn’t say whether the shooter was motivated.
Don Carter Lanes posted a simple message on Facebook after the shooting asking people to “pray please.”
In the United States, shooting incidents are not uncommon, but despite the large-scale legislative efforts to solve the problem of gun violence, they have long been deadlocked at the federal level.
