"Lone gunman" nghĩa là gì?

"Lone gunman" = tay súng đơn độc -> tay xạ thủ chỉ hành động một mình. Từ này được cho là liên quan đến kẻ ám sát John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Ví dụ
A lone gunman killed a policeman and wounded a civilian (thường dân) in a daring (táo bạo) broad-daylight attack Wednesday in Zamboanga City, the police said.

To be told when I'm sat in the Chair there is a policeman dying outside - and that there could be a lone gunman somewhere in the building - is not anything I ever want to go through again.

The scene was all the more shocking because it was a neighborhood joint, and the night of Nov. 7, 2018, it was packed with young college-age patrons (người bảo trợ) and several off-duty cops, all targeted by a lone gunman.
