    Post Man killed in bar shooting near Seattle

    Banoosh » » Man killed in bar shooting near Seattle

    A man has been killed in a shooting at a crowded bar in near Seattle, amid rising gun violence across the United States.

    Officer Carla Iafrate said the 30-year-old man was shot dead at 1:00 a.m. on Monday at a bar in the Bellevue Square shopping center.
    Another man was also injured in the incident, Iafrate said, adding the wounded man was transferred to a nearby hospital.
    The officer also said that there were 6oo people inside the bar when the shooting occurred. “It was a very complicated scene,” she added.
    Police have launched an investigation into the shooting, but has not made any arrest yet.
    The shooting came hours after two American firefighters were shot dead, after a man opened fire on them while responding to a house blaze on the Christmas Eve in Webster Town in New York.
    Two other firefighters were also injured in the shooting, and were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.
    There have been several deadly shootings across the United States in the past few weeks, underlining rising concerns about lack of gun controls in the country.
    On December 14, a 20-year-old man, identified as Adam Lanza, killed twenty children and six adults at the Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut.
    More than 100,000 Americans have signed the White House’s online petition, dubbed “We the People,” asking the Obama administration for a renewed national debate on gun control.
