The incident has shaken the entire United States including celebrities and politicians who voiced their support for the grieving families.

After years of nothing else, we are becoming a nation of anguished screams. We simply need legislators willing to stop the scourge of gun violence in America that is murdering our children."



President Joe Biden addressed the nation after returning to The White House after a five-day Asia trip. Biden tweeted, "As a nation we must ask: When in God’s name will we stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name will we do what needs to be done? I’m sick and tired of it. We have to act." He posted another tweet saying, " Tonight, there are parents who will never see their child again. Parents who will never be the same. To lose a child is to have a piece of your soul ripped away forever. I ask the nation to pray for them — to give them strength in the darkness."
