Gun violence on July 4th: Nearly 100 die during holiday

Nearly 100 people have been shot around the July 4th holiday due to gun violence as the nation marks the independence day.

From Friday through Sunday, 26 people were shot, two of them fatally, in New York.

During a July 4th fireworks display in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, a gunman opened fire killing two and wounding three others.

A large brawl was also reported in Atlanta with some 50 adolescents involved and one death reported.

Furthermore, a shooting took place in Fort Worth, Texas, which left 8 people wounded.

Two police officers were also shot and later hospitalized due to non-life threatening injuries in Chicago, Illinois, on Monday.

"Thereís been a lot of large crowd gatherings tonight, a lot of celebratory fireworks going off, kind of spontaneous," police Superintendent David Brown said. "They were dispersing a crowd when they heard shots and felt pain."

An 18-year-old woman was shot dead Sunday in Milwaukee, where at least two other shootings occurred during the July 4 holiday.

In April, US President Joe Biden called for end to "epidemic" of gun violence in the US, urging Congress to reimpose a 1994 ban on "assault weapons" and high-capacity magazines.

During his independence day speech, US president Joe Biden mostly focused on her first tackle the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.

"You know, history tells us, when we stand together, when we unite in common cause, when we see ourselves not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans, then there is simply no limit to what we can achieve. None. Today we see the results of the unity of purpose. The unity of purpose we are forging -- weíre our nation," Biden said. "Thanks to our heroic vaccine effort, weíve gained the upper hand against this virus. We can live our lives, our kids can go back to school, our economy is roaring back. Donít get me wrong -- COVID-19 has not been vanquished. We all know powerful variants have emerged like the delta variant."
