An attack on a US hospital has killed at least four people and injured 10 others. The attacker is a man of color. He was found dead and is believed to have committed suicide.
The attack took place on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, in the Natalie Medical Building in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is a hospital specializing in surgery and cancer treatment. A man opened fire on the second floor of the building. He allegedly used at least two weapons. Police were called at 16.52 local time and were already at the scene at 17.01.
President Joe Biden has been informed of this attack. The Washington administration says it is in touch with local authorities in Oklahoma State.
With regard to the American police, there is a faster reaction than the incident a week ago, in the state of Texas, when an hour passed before the arrival of the intervention teams. 19 children and two adults were killed in the attack on a school in Uvalde, Texas. Both the attacker and the victims in Uvalde were US citizens of Hispanic descent.

Earlier, on May 14, another attack in Buffalo, New York, killed ten people. At that time, the victims were mostly black people, and the perpetrator was allegedly racially motivated.
All these attacks have rekindled the dispute over the sale of firearms in the United States. Democrats, led by President Joe Biden, insist on restricting them. Instead, former Republican President Donald Trump has called for the population to be armed in order to defend itself.
