New York, March 24 (TIWN) Ten people have been killed in a mass shooting in Boulder in Colorado state putting the focus on gun violence, the intractable scourge of the US that is deeply rooted in ideology.

The killings at a grocery shop followed another another massacre last Tuesday in which eight people were killed in Atlanta. 

 
Herold said that Alissa, who was taken to a hospital after being taken into custody, was in a stable condition. 
 
She said that he has been charged with ten murders but did not provide a motive. 
 
FBI Special Agent Michael Schneider said officials were conducting a "thorough investigation which includes identifying the subject's motives". 
 
A Senate committee started a previously scheduled hearing on gun violence on Tuesday morning, which brought out the political differences between the Democrats and Republicans on guns. 
 
"We face a pandemic of coronavirus. We have another epidemic in America called guns," said Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin, a Democrat Senator.
