Seventeen others were injured in the shooting.
The Buttigieg campaign has detailed his plans to reduce gun violence if elected.
Those include expanding background checks, a “permit-to-purchase licensing system” for potential gun buyers, beefing up reporting of lost or stolen guns and closing loopholes that allow those convicted of domestic violence to keep guns. Buttigieg would also boost funding for research into gun violence and step up efforts to reduce firearm suicides.
