Five people dead after mass shooting in England

Five people, including a young child, were killed in a mass shooting in southwest England on Thursday, authorities said.

The shooter, who was also killed, kicked in the door of a home then gunned down a woman and her young daughter before randomly opening fire on other people in the streets of Plymouth, reports and officials said.

Two women and two men were found dead at the scene as well as another man believed to be the gunman, Devon & Cornwall police said in a statement. A woman was transported to a local hospital and later died, police said.

More people were being treated for their injuries in the hospital, a local member of Parliament said.

“We should prepare ourselves for more grim news tomorrow,” MP Luke Pollard said on Twitter. “Please look out for one another.”

Pollard said he was “utterly devastated” that one of those killed was a child under 10 years old.
