April 3. Binghamton, New York – A gunman killed 13 people at an immigrant counselling centre where many of his victims were studying to become US citizens. The carnage at the American Civic Association, a language and help centre for immigrants settled in New York state, had all the hallmarks of being premeditated. The gunman drove his car to the back of the building and parked it tight against the rear door – preventing those inside from escaping. He then entered the front door armed with two handguns, shot both receptionists, one fatally and the other in the stomach. More on Guardian
