This holiday season has been marred by mass casualty events like last week’s UVA shooting and the Sunday shooting at an LGTBQ nightclub in Colorado Springs that left five people dead and 18 others wounded. The DC ATF office is assisting local law enforcement with their investigation into the sad case of violence.
