WASHINGTON, D.C. (WIFR) -- U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) issued the following statement after the mass shooting in Korat, Thailand:

“Such sad news out of Thailand this weekend,” said Senator Duckworth. “My heart goes out to the victims’ loved ones and all those affected by the mass shooting in Korat. This sort of tragedy should never happen anywhere.”

This comes after a gunman in Thailand killed nearly 30 people this weekend in a shooting rampage. The gunman was killed by police.

Authorities say the gunman has a stolen machine gun, and his mother said he had depression and extreme anger.
