    Comma, lately, recently, one and two others?

    Q1: "One man was shot dead and two others were wounded." In this sentence, why there is no comma(,) after and?
    I thought One man and two others are different. So there must be comma(,) after and.
    Like this "One man was shot dead, and two others were wounded."

    Q2: Is it right to transform this sentence
    "Because he was shot dea, his dictatorship is over." into "Being shot dead, his dictatorship is over."?

    Q3:Could you remove "beause" below the sentence and make sentence?
    "In the most recent case, two man drowned because they jumped into the river to save a friend recklessly even though they didn't know how to swim"

    Q4:Please check these sentences are correct.
    Recently, the celebrities visited Japan for official event.

    The comma is not necessary. Please start separate threads for your other questions.
