Several countries have issued travel warnings in the wake of the spate of deadly mass shootings that have swept the US in the last week, killing a total of 34 people, and injuring dozens more.

The shootings began in Gilroy, California on July 28, when a shooter opened fire on the Gilroy Garlic Festival, leaving 3 dead and 12 injured.

Gun shots were first reported early evening local time and police engaged with the shooter “in less than a minute” once they arrived at the scene, killing him.

The FBI on Tuesday announced that it has opened a domestic terrorism investigation into the shooting after it discovered a “target list” compiled by the gunman, who may have been motivated by nationalist views.

On Saturday, less than a week after the Gilroy shooting, a 21-year-old man opened fire on a busy Walmart in El Paso, Texas, which left 22 people dead and 24 others injured.

Authorities said they were investigating a manifesto that they believe was written by the suspected shooter, which expressed hatred towards Hispanic immigrants.

In the shooting, three Mexican nationals were killed and six were wounded, prompting authorities in Mexico to take legal action to protect its citizens in the United States.

Less than 24 hours later, another mass shooting claimed the lives of 9 people and injured 27 others at a bar in Dayton Ohio. The shooter opened fire around 1 a.m. local time outside the city’s nightlife center and was killed by police on the scene.
