WORLD TODAY: ...and 10 killed in US.

A GUNMAN went on the rampage in the United States killing at least nine people including members of his own family, before fatally shooting himself. At least four other people, including a child, were injured in the shootings which took place across two Alabama counties.

The man burned down his mother's home, killed his grandparents, an uncle and aunt, and shot at apparent strangers on their porches as he drove by. He then turned the gun on himself.

Frankie Lindsay, chief of police in Geneva County, said the man also fired at officers as they chased his vehicle in patrol cars.

He said: " I've been in this business for 33 years and this is the worst I've ever seen."
