El Paso Walmart rampage marks 250th mass shooting in 215 days

El Paso Walmart rampage marks 250th mass shooting in 215 days The El Paso Walmart shooting occurred on the 215th day of the year, meaning there have been more mass shootings than days so far this year. The massacre at the Walmart near the Cielo Vista Mall became the nation's latest mass shooting as defined by the Gun Violence Archive, a not-for-profit organization that provides online public access to information about gun-related violence. The archive categorizes mass shootings as incidents in which four or more people were shot or killed, not including the shooters. So far this year, 522 people have died in mass shootings and 2,040 have been injured, according to the data.

At least nine people were killed early Sunday when a gunman attacked an entertainment district in Dayton , Ohio, the nation’s third mass shooting in less than a week after fatalities in El Paso and Gilroy , Calif.

Mass shootings are incidents involving multiple victims of firearm-related violence. The precise inclusion criteria are disputed, and there is no broadly accepted definition.
