Mass shootings in the United States
Four people were killed and nearly a dozen wounded, including two children, when a gunman went on a rampage on Nov. 14, randomly picking his targets at a school and other locations in rural northern California.
Supporters of gun ownership say that the response by one man to the Texas shooting is evidence that gun controls would actually cause more deaths.
Two men reportedly confronted gunman Devin Kelley with their own weapons after he killed 26 people at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs in San Antonio.
A have-a-go-hero helped prevent further victims of the Sutherland Springs gunman by shooting the suspect and then chasing him with another hero, it emerged on Monday.
Stephen Willeford, who lives near the Texas church targeted yesterday, grabbed his own rifle and rushed to confront Devin Kelley after being told an attack was under way by his daughter.
