Several people were killed in a shooting accident at a house in the US state of Oregon, according to a statement issued by the police Monday evening.
The Marion County Police Chief said they had dealt with a possible hostage-taking incident in a house southeast of “Salem” and that a trained negotiator had spoken with the suspect.
“There was shooting. In the end, several people were killed during this incident, including the suspect,” he added in a statement.
From time to time, US cities witness shooting incidents, which lead to many deaths and injuries.
A week ago, the US police announced the killing of two people and wounding 14 others, following a shooting at a party in New York State.
