During the Halloween weekend, multiple mass shootings occurred across the country, resulting in at least six fatalities and over 40 injuries, according to officials.

In Texarkana, Texas, a party at a business on N. Stateline Avenue in the 700 block turned tragic around 9 p.m. Saturday. Three individuals lost their lives, and three more sustained injuries. The turmoil began when a fistfight erupted between two men at the party.

During this altercation, at least two men produced rifles and opened fire, as reported by the Texarkana Texas Police Department. Among the six victims, aged 19 to 31, one man perished at the scene, while a woman and another man succumbed to their injuries in the hospital.

The remaining three victims, two men and a woman, are expected to recover from their injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.

Detectives are actively seeking Breoskii Warren, a 20-year-old individual identified as a suspect in the shooting, and they encourage anyone with information about the incident or Warren’s whereabouts to come forward.

In Indianapolis, a woman lost her life, and eight other individuals sustained gunshot wounds during a large party. Police in Indiana responded to the event around midnight, witnessing shots fired and people in a state of panic.


The victims, all between the ages of 16 and 22, included the woman pronounced dead at the scene. Several individuals have been detained for questioning, and multiple firearms were discovered at the scene.

In Tampa, Florida, two individuals were fatally shot, and 18 others were injured during Halloween celebrations in the Ybor City neighborhood. The violence erupted during a confrontation between two groups just before 3 a.m., as explained by Tampa Police Chief Lee Bercaw at a news briefing.

Of the injured, 15 people sustained gunshot wounds, and one person suffered “serious” injuries. Tyrell Stephen Phillips, 22, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder with a firearm, with Bercaw crediting the arrest to tips from the community.
