Deadly gun violence again in the United States: A man shot at least three people in a gas station store in Washington state.

In front of the gas station in the city of Yakima in the west of the country, the man finally fired into a car on Tuesday night and injured or killed a possible fourth victim, police chief Matt Murray said at a press conference.

The shooter then fled in that car.

"This is a dangerous individual who is acting indiscriminately and there is a danger to the community," Murray warned.

He could not give any information about a possible motive.

“There was no apparent conflict between the parties.

The man just walked in and started shooting," he said of the incident at the store attached to the gas station.

Gun violence and deadly attacks of this magnitude are sadly normal in the United States.

In the past few days, there have been several sensational acts in which numerous people have been killed.

Over the weekend, a gunman opened fire at a dance hall during a Chinese New Year celebration in Southern California.

Ten people died at the Monterey Park crime scene, and another victim succumbed to his injuries in hospital on Monday.

On Monday, another man opened fire at two crime scenes in Half Moon Bay, killing seven people.

The crime also happened in the state of California.
