(Cupventi.com) – A series of shootings during Father’s Day weekend in the US resulted in multiple casualties, including two people killed at a celebration in Texas. The incident occurred at a free festival co-hosted by the city of Round Rock, where an altercation between two groups led to gunfire.

Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks stated that neither of the two victims was involved in the shooting, and 14 other bystanders were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds. Police are currently searching for a suspect.

In a separate incident in Methuen, Massachusetts, seven people were shot and another injured while running away from a “car club meetup.” Two of the victims were in critical condition, while others were reported stable. Methuen Police Chief Scott McNamara stated that these gatherings have been an issue in the area in recent years, but they generally don’t escalate to such a level of violence.

Other shootings occurred over the Father’s Day weekend, including one at a Michigan park that injured nine people, two of whom were young children. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as 42-year-old Michael William Nash, who killed himself after the shooting. In Columbus, Ohio, two people were killed and two others were injured at a nightclub after a verbal altercation escalated.

A shooting in Chicago left five people with gunshot wounds, including a 15-year-old girl who was shot in the neck and is in serious condition. A suspect fled the scene on foot after shooting the victims. In Tampa, Florida, a man died in a shootout with police after he barricaded himself inside a home and killed his parents, authorities alleged.

Six people were shot in Lathrup Village, Michigan, with two of the victims listed in critical condition at a hospital. Police believe it was an “isolated, targeted attack” and that there is no threat to the public. Five people were wounded in a shooting at Bramble Park in Cincinnati, with one person in critical condition and four others in non-life-threatening condition.
