#USA, January 25, 2023 – On Monday morning the San Mateo Police and Sheriff’s departments in California posted comforting words for the families of the 11 Monterey Park shooting victims, which occurred about six hours away from them; by Monday night seven people lay dead, this time in their own district after another mass shooting. 

The state of California has been left reeling after a second elderly man Zhao Chunli, 67 carried out another mass shooting. The latest incident which happened in Half Moon Bay Area came less than two days after 72 year old Huu Can Tran took 11 lives in Monterey Park.

This shooting puts the US at 39 mass shootings for the year which is only in its 24th day, an all-time high since rising gun crime pushed the Gun Violence Archive to start tracking the mass shootings in 2012.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office broke down the incident which spanned two locations explaining that the man went after eight former coworkers of his, five were shot at a mushroom farm and three at a trucking company minutes away.  Police were alerted after the first shooting and rushed to the farm but four men were already dead and the other rushed to hospital, according to Sheriff Christina Corpus.

The suspect could not immediately be located and it was only during the search that the police found three more victims already dead.

Two hours after the first call was made to police, Zhao drove himself to the Sheriff’s office and was arrested.

The sole survivor of the incident remains in hospital.

PRESS STATEMENT: MINISTRY OF EDUCATION

#TurksandCaicos, January 27, 2023 – The Ministry responsible for Education confirms that a recent report of alleged sexual abuse was brought to the attention of authorities at a particular school. For the protection of the child, we will not divulge details of this matter. We do acknowledge that there were issues experienced which resulted in less than appropriate response to the incident.

 The Ministry is continuing its investigation of the incident, in its totality and has since requested a comprehensive report on the response from all involved. Several meetings, visits and discussions were held. The key is to ensure that the minor involved is afforded additional counselling and care and that other students within the institution are also afforded the relevant support needed. The Student Support Services has been active in coordinating this response which is currently in operation.

 As an immediate further action, the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) entities will convene and existing protocols will be reviewed and investigations conducted to determine the consistency of the response, exactly where the established protocols were not followed and the subsequent actions to be taken.

 The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Social Services considers its responsibility for the Safeguarding of children of utmost importance. In so doing, the Ministry of Education has instituted a number of measures over the years to ensure that allegations of abuse to children in schools are treated with urgency. The creation of the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) was created to ensure that teachers, leaders, Social Workers, and Police can respond to allegations with the child’s safety and protection as the core consideration. Child safeguarding remains the Ministry’s primary concern.
