Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano speak out after Santa Clarita shooting: ‘How many need to die?’

Celebrities are weighing in on social media following news of the Saugus High School shooting in Santa Clarita, Calif.

On Thursday morning, a 16-year-old gunman opened fire in the school’s quad area and shot five students before turning the gun on himself. Two people were killed and four injured – including the gunman – in a 16-second shooting rampage. 

Kim Kardashian said she was “heartbroken” over the news and offered her thoughts and prayers to the families affected by the shooting.

“Wow just heard about another senseless shooting in Santa Clarita – absolutely devastated and heartbroken,” she wrote on Twitter. “Praying for the families and everyone who has been effected by this tragedy.”

Latoya Jackson echoed Messing’s sentiments, tweeting out a news segment of the Saugus shooting and calling for an end to gun violence.

Arianna Huffington also called for gun reform writing that the world is willing to accept images of “traumatized students” more so than they are willing to pass gun laws.

“No matter how many times we see it, it will always be shocking that the image of traumatized students walking out their school with their hands up is more tolerable than passing common sense gun laws,” the founder of the “Huffington Post” wrote.
