Three dead, 14 wounded in Kansas shooting spree

KANSAS, USA (Reuters) - Deadly gun violence tops the list of crime stories this week.

Cedric Ford, 34,  was identified as the man who killed three people and wounded 14 others in Kansas.

Officials say Ford was served - just 90 minutes before his shooting spree - with a protection from abuse court order.

Police are investigating further as victims recover and the Hesston community comes together in support.

After last weekend's deadly shootings in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Uber driver Jason Dalton has been charged with six counts of murder and 10 other crimes.

This, after Dalton allegedly shot people at random during a five-hour period. 

Four people were killed in this home, west of Seattle, by a gunman who later killed himself in front of police after an hours-long standoff.

Police say the gunman's wife, two adopted sons and a neighbour were the victims.

"As you can see it's a very large crime scene that stretches an entire city block," said Sergeant Daron L. Wyatt of the Anaheim Police Department.

In Anaheim, California, police say four people were stabbed in a scuffle between members of the Klu Klux Klan and counter-protesters near a planned rally.

Officials say 13 people were arrested, including one Klan member who is accused of stabbing someone with a flagpole.

That victim is reportedly in critical condition.
