Information About The Victim
According to officials, three men and three women were killed along with 12 injured. However, little is known about the victims.
Sergio Harris, 38, has been confirmed as one of the victims. His mother described him as a “very vivacious young man” who always smiled and never bothered anyone. “And for this to happen,” she added, “it’s crazy.” “And I’m just to the point right now (where) I don’t know what to do. I don’t even think this is real.”

President Joe Biden issued a statement in response to the shooting on Sunday evening, calling for the prohibition of ghost guns, often known as unregistered firearms, background checks for all gun sales, and the outlawing of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
