Mass shootings in America have unfortunately become a way of life in America and it is affecting every age group.
Two Alabama cheerleaders are reportedly “fighting for their lives” following a mass shooting that went down last month at a birthday celebration that left them both being shot in the head and other areas of their body.
“Cara Johns and Trinity Richards, both 16, were injured when six gunmen allegedly opened fire at Birthday girl Alexis Dowdell’s celebration at the Mahogany Masterpiece Dance Studio in Dadeville, Alabama, around 10.30pm on April 15,” the Daily Mail reports.
“Both girls were shot in the head but also sustained wounds around their legs, stomachs, and chests. The two are fighting for their lives after being told their conditions may not be ‘survivable.”
The two girls were two of 24 people who survived being shot at the Sweet 16 birthday party in Dadeville nearly three weeks ago.
Alexis Dowdell’s brother, Phil, was killed. Others killed in the shooting were Shaunkivia Nicole “Keke” Smith, 17, Marsiah Emmanuel “Siah” Collins, 19, and Corbin Dahmontrey Holston, 23.
Of the 24 shooting survivors, 21 suffered penetrating wounds and three graze wounds. The majority of the gunshot victims reportedly suffered multiple wounds each.
The other victims were one 19-year-old, six 18-year-olds, three 17-year-olds, ten 16-year-olds, five 15-year-olds, and two 14-year-olds, according to AL.com.
This news comes on the heels of another mass shooting at an outdoor Texas mall where Mauricio Garcia killed eight people and wounded seven others with an AR-15-style assault rifle at the Allen Premium Outlets in Allen on Saturday.
Garcia, who had no criminal history, reportedly shared a home with his parents and had booked an extended stay at a nearby motel.
Videos of his carnage can be seen online and really highlights how tragic things can turn for multiple families.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
