The shooting massacre is the UK’s worst since 2010, according to BBC.
Police do not investigate murder as an act of terrorism.
The suspected offender, 22-year-old Jake Davison, first shot and killed a 51-year-old woman he was said to have had a connection with. The police said in a press conference, Friday, that it happened inside a house.
Davison then continued down the street, shooting and killing a three-year-old girl and a 43-year-old man who had an affair with the girl.
Died in hospital
He then shot a 33-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman who were wounded but survived. They were taken to the hospital, but did not receive life-threatening injuries.
Then, a 59-year-old man was killed in a green area, while a 66-year-old woman was shot at Henderson Place. She later died in hospital.
Police spokesman Sean Sawyer said witnesses told us that Davison took his life.
He had a permit
According to the police, Davison had a permit to carry the weapon he used, a shotgun. She was found with him, so the police are not looking for other suspects.
The drama of the shooting lasted only 6 minutes, but the police do not rule out the possibility that there are more than 13 crime scenes in the city in the southwest of England.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson expresses his sympathy to the relatives and others affected by the accident.
– I thank the emergency services for their efforts, the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter.
Davison has previously posted several videos online expressing his extreme dissatisfaction with life.
In a video, which was later removed by YouTube, the 22-year-old wrote that he is socially isolated, according to the BBC. He referred to the so-called incels – groups of men who claim to live in “involuntary celibacy” and who are often misogynistic.
– I know it’s a movie, but sometimes I like to think I’m The Terminator or something. Although the system failed almost entirely, it still tried to get the job done, and Davison is said to have said in what was likely his last video.
Screaming and shooting
Witnesses described the perpetrator as a man dressed in black and carrying a rifle.
– At first he was screaming, then he shot. Three, maybe four, at first, a woman in the city tells the BBC.
The offender then kicked a door and shot a house, before running away from the house and shooting several others, she continues.
Another eyewitness said he approached the corner and “hit a man with a rifle.” It is said that the man was dressed in black.
After they were notified of the shooting, the police quickly rushed to the scene in the Keham area. Ambulances quickly reached the area, and an ambulance plane was also used.
