The US has reported at least 50 mass shootings since the Atlanta spa shootings


The United States has seen at least 150 mass shootings in 2021, according to data from the GVA, a non-profit based in Washington.

CNN considers an incident to be a mass shooting if four or more people are shot, wounded or killed, excluding the gunman; so does the GVA.
