This is the 19th mass shooting in 2023, the highest number at this point in the year since at least 2006, according to a database maintained by Associated Press and USA Today in collaboration with Northeastern University. A mass murder is defined as the murder of four or more people other than the offender.

This year, there has been an average of one mass shooting a week. In one of the latest incidents, a 38-year-old man was still on the run Monday after killing five neighbors in a rural Texas town when he was told to stop shooting in his front yard at night when a baby was trying to sleep.
