List of mass shootings in the United States in 2022


The mass shooting at a Colorado Springs gay nightclub is one of just over 600 mass shootings to date in 2022 in the United States, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit data collection organization that tallies gun violence incidents.

The school shooting in which 19 children and two adults were killed at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday is the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. this year.

The Colorado Springs shooting has the fourth highest number of victims overall, including dead and injured, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive. The only mass shootings with more are Uvalde, the Highland Park July 4th parade shooting in Illinois, and a shooting at a car show in Dumas, Arkansas that left one dead and 26 injured in March.

The Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting as an incident in which four or more people are shot or killed, excluding the gunman.

Prior to the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, the deadliest mass shooting this year was at a supermarket in Buffalo where a gunman dressed in tactical gear killed 10 people and wounded three others.

Here is a partial list of mass shootings this year. A full list of mass shootings in 2022 can be found here.
