Two persons were killed in a shootout at a hospital in the USA.

According to the media reports, a person opened fire in a psychiatric hospital in the northeastern US state of New Hampshire, killing one person.

The suspect was later killed by the cops. State Police Col. Mark Hall said that the suspect entered New Hampshire Hospital in Concord and shot a man in the lobby.

"A security guard assigned to the hospital immediately responded and returned fire, killing the suspect," Hall said. He also said that the attack was limited to the lobby of the hospital.

Mark Hall did not identify the shooter or the victim. "There is no risk to the public and there is no risk to patients or staff at the hospital," he said.

It is being told that this is a hospital with 185 beds in New Hampshire. Patients with serious mental illness are treated here. In such a situation, it is beyond understanding what was the intention of the person who opened fire? After all, why did the person enter the hospital to open fire?

Shooting incidents are alarmingly common in America. It is said that America is a country where there are more guns than people. There were many attempts to make strict rules regarding the sale of guns, but every time they were opposed. The issue of arms ban has also been raised in many elections.

There have been demands to impose strict gun laws in the USA following a series of shootings in public places in the past few years but the powerful gun lobby managed to thwart the attempts. Successive governments also failed to impose curbs on gun sale fearing stiff opposition from the gun makers.
