Six people, including a child, were killed in a mass shooting in the city of Plymouth in southwest England on Thursday evening.
Two females and three males died from gunshot wounds at the scene of the incident, the Devon and Cornwall Police said in a statement. Another female died a short time later in hospital, the police added. Police on Friday named the gunman as Jake Davison, a 23-year-old Crane Operator.
“We believe we have an incident that is domestically related, that has spilled into the street and seen several people in Plymouth losing their lives in extraordinarily tragic circumstances,” Devon and Cornwall Police’s Chief Constable, Shaun Sawyer said.
