Nine people have been killed and six others injured in separate shooting incidents in the US state of Texas, according to authorities.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Nine people have been killed and six others injured in separate shooting incidents in the US state of Texas, according to authorities.

Police said a man shot and killed 4 members of his family and injured three others before killing himself in Navarro County on Saturday.

The suspect identified as Kevin Milazzo, 41, shot dead his 68-year-old stepfather, William Mimms; his mother Connie Mimms, 61; his 21-year-old son Joshua Milazzo; and his former girlfriend's son, 4-year-old Hunter Freeman.

Milazzo was reportedly on the run, according to ABC affiliate WFAA. Police intercepted him on a road and used a monitoring service to shut his engine off.

Officers approached his vehicle to see Milazzo critically injured with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The conditions of the three survivors are not immediately known.

Also police, after midnight on Saturday, responded to the scene of another shooting in Corsicana, which is about 55 miles outside of Dallas.

According to Corsicana Police Chief Robert Johnson, a man and a woman were shot and killed in Corsicana. Two other people were wounded in the shooting.

Shortly after the incident, police responded to another shooting in the nearby town of Frost, according to the Daily Sun.

A man and a child were shot and killed in Frost, while another one was wounded.

Gun violence in the United States has been a chronic social problem that seems to have no solution.

According to the latest data by the GVA, some 400 Americans were killed in gun violence only in the first four days of 2022.
