Summary

Public mass shootings account for a tiny fraction of the country’s gun deaths, but they are uniquely terrifying because they occur without warning in the most mundane places. It looks at the public shootings in which four or more people were killed by a lone shooter (two shooters in a few cases). More than half — of them — died at or near the scene of the shooting, often by killing themselves.ClickTap on an icon for details about each shooter.The most recent female shooter was a Pakistani mother who helped kill 14 partygoers at her husband’s workplace in San Bernardino, Calif., in 2015. They killed four girls and a teacher and wounded 10 others.In the 50 years before the Texas tower shooting, there were just 25 public mass shootings in which four or more people were killed, according to author and criminologist Grant Duwe. Death tolls include victims killed by shooters within a day of the main shooting, including any who were killed in another way. After mass shooting events, much debate centers around Americans’ relatively easy access to guns.
