12 people killed in Virginia Beach mass shooting

Police have said 12 people were killed in America’s latest mass shooting, at a government building in Virginia yesterday.

The authorities said a ‘disgruntled’ utilities engineer carried out the attack in Virginia Beach, on the east coast. He died after a gun battle with police.

It is the country’s 150th mass shooting this year. The city’s mayor described it as “the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach.”
