A gunman, on Sunday, reportedly killed six people at a birthday party in Colorado, United States of America.
The US Police, in disclosing the incident, said the man also shot himself.
It was gathered that the Colorado Springs police responded shortly after midnight to an emergency call at a mobile home park, where they found six adults shot dead and one adult male who was seriously injured.
The assailant, who is yet to be publicly identified, was transported to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.
None of the children at the party were injured in the attack, according to the police, and they were being cared for by family members.
Preliminary investigations revealed that families had gathered for a birthday party inside one of the trailers when the shooting occurred.
“The suspect, a boyfriend of one of the female victims, drove to the residence, walked inside and began shooting people at the party before taking his own life,” the police said in a statement.
Also, the Colorado Springs police chief Vince Niski, said: “From the officers who responded to the shooting to the investigators still on scene, we are all left incredibly shaken. This is something you hope never happens in your own community.”
It was the third mass shooting in Colorado Springs since October 2015, including a random Halloween massacre and an attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in November that same year, local media said.
The United States has suffered a spate of mass shootings in recent months, including at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, an office building in California, a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado and at several spas in Atlanta.
President Joe Biden last month branded US gun violence an “epidemic” and an “international embarrassment.”
There were more than 43,000 gun-related deaths in the United States last year, including suicides, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
