The woman who was shot by the man was treated and released on the same day.

An investigation into the case is still underway.

Tragically, this is another case of gun violence reported in the US. 

According to Brady United, a campaign against gun violence, 321 people are shot in the US every day. Among them 111 are killed, 95 are intentionally shot and survived and 42 are murdered.

What's more is that at least 385 mass shootings have occurred so far in 2022, as reported by the Gun Violence Archive.

One such incident happened in Uvalde, Texas where one deranged man decided to attack an elementary school and claimed so many innocent lives.

Following the shooting President Joe Biden issued a statement saying: "After Columbine, after Sandy Hook, after Charleston, after Orlando, after Las Vegas, after Parkland, nothing has been done.

"This time, that can’t be true. This time, we must actually do something. The issue we face is one of conscience and common sense."

The President went on to add: "We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. And if we can’t ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21."

Still, following the shooting little has been done to control guns in the US, leading to mass shootings and domestic incidents, including Byron Redmon shooting a woman and accidentally killing himself, as mentioned above.
