    Two dead, one wounded in another US shooting

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – A shooting at a religious building in the United States (US) state of Alabama left two people dead and one wounded on Thursday, police said.

    It happened in the town of Vestavia Hills and a suspect is in custody, the town’s police department said on Facebook.

    The shooting took place as a potluck dinner is being held.

    Police captain Shane Ware told reporters a lone assailant entered the building and started shooting.

    Three people were hit: Two have died and the other is being treated, he said.

    The US is in the midst of a particularly gruesome chapter of its epidemic of gun violence.
