A gun­man opened fire at a June­teenth cel­e­bra­tion in Round Rock, Texas, on Sat­ur­day night, turn­ing a joy­ous event into a tragedy. Two indi­vid­u­als lost their lives, and six oth­ers, includ­ing two chil­dren, were wound­ed in the shooting.

The inci­dent unfold­ed around 10:50 pm after a fight broke out between two groups. Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks con­firmed that the deceased were not involved in the ini­tial alter­ca­tion. The injured were trans­port­ed to near­by hos­pi­tals with poten­tial­ly seri­ous conditions.

Author¬≠i¬≠ties are search¬≠ing for the sus¬≠pects who remain at large. ‚ÄúThis sense¬≠less act of vio¬≠lence has shat¬≠tered our com¬≠mu¬≠ni¬≠ty‚Äôs cel¬≠e¬≠bra¬≠tion of June¬≠teenth, a day of immense sig¬≠nif¬≠i¬≠cance mark¬≠ing the eman¬≠ci¬≠pa¬≠tion of enslaved African Amer¬≠i¬≠cans,‚ÄĚ Chief Banks said.
