Two US mass shootings in 13 hours leave at least 29 dead

The United States is once again in shock tonight after 29 people were killed in two mass shootings within hours of each other dozens more were injured, many still in a critical condition.

A 21 year old man has been arrested over the first attack in El Paso which the FBI are treating as a domestic terror case after a racist, anti immigrant manifesto allegedly written by the suspect was shared online.

And police in Dayton Ohio have just confirmed the identity of the gunman there, a 24 year old man. But, along with calling for far stricter gun controls, leading Democrats have spoken out against the racist rhetoric deployed by none other than President Trump.

This report by Symeon Brown contains some distressing images.
