SAN FRANCISCO -- Mass shootings across the country have increased in recent years, up from pre-pandemic numbers.

There were :

  • 647 in 2022
  • 691 in 2021
  • 611 in 2020
  • 417 in 2019

The ABC7 Data Team created an interactive map showing mass shootings for 2023 so far.

Data is taken from the Gun Violence Archive, a research group that uses over 7,500 law enforcement, media, government and commercial sources to compile an up-to-date list of mass shootings across the United States.

The organization defines mass shootings as an incident in which four or more victims are shot or killed, not including the perpetrator.
