Four shot dead at Teen’s birthday party in US

At least four people have been killed in a mass shooting in Alabama on Saturday.

Several people were injured following the incident at a 16th birthday party in the town of Dadeville, local media is reporting.

The shooting happened at the Mahogany Masterpiece Dance Studio on Saturday.

“This morning, I grieve with the people of Dadeville and my fellow Alabamians,” state governor Kay Ivey said.
“Violent crime has no place in our state, and we are staying closely updated by law enforcement as de- tails emerge,” the governor added in a statement on Twitter.

There has been no confirmation about what led to the incident, or whether any suspects have been taken into custody.
The Alabama incident follows a shooting on the same day at a park in Louisville, Kentucky, which killed two people and injured four others.
With a population of about 3,200 people, Dadeville is a small, rural town located in Tallapoosa County in the east of Alabama.
There have been more than 140 mass shootings in the US so far this year.
