Police in the United States are responding to another ‘mass shooting incident’ in Ohio – less than 24 hours after the Walmart shooting incident in El Paso, Texas which claimed the lives of 20.

First reports indicate that a live shooter opened fire in a bar located in Dayton, Ohio around 1:55 a.m. Ohio time using a semi-automatic weapon. Seven people have been killed and 24 injured.

Reports also indicate that a shooter is down. Police are searching for a second possible shooter that may have left the area in a dark Jeep.

The Oregon District is home to several nightclubs, restaurants and art galleries.

This is the second ‘mass shooting’ incident in the United States within 24 hours. Earlier, a gunman opened fire at innocent shoppers in a Walmart Shopping Centre in El Paso, Texas. Less than 20 minutes before the attack, the alleged murderer posted a hate-manifesto online that accused the Hispanic community of hijacking the US and its white values.

“This is the last generation of white babies in America”, read the online manifesto.
