Three people lost their lives, while an additional six were wounded following gunshots at a Hookah Lounge in Seattle, Washington, a city known for its strict firearm regulations.
The incident occurred on Sunday around 4:30 a.m.
According to a report by KIRO 7, the police found five firearms at the location:
Five guns were recovered at the scene. Police say that this incident is part of a recent pattern where more guns are turning up in shootings.
“The growing concern is how many guns are being fired in these cases,” said Diaz. “People pulling out and having a disregard for life, we have the capital hill case, the Rainer Beach Safeway incident, and now we have this.”
Details are limited at the moment, but among those who have passed away are a 22-year-old male, a 32-year-old male, and a 30-year-old woman.
ABC News reported that one of the six injured persons is in critical condition.
Mike Bloomberg-affiliated Everytown for Gun Safety ranks Washington as the No. 10 state in the country for gun control strength.
Washington state has implemented all the gun control measures that are currently being pushed by Democrats in both the U.S. House and Senate.
Those controls include universal background checks, a red flag law, an “assault weapons” ban, a “high-capacity” magazine ban, regulations on firearms Democrats describe as “ghost guns,” a gun storage law, and numerous other controls.
