The United States has seen at least 381 mass shootings this year, CNN reported citing the nonprofit Gun Violence Archive. A mass shooting is when at least four people have been shot, excluding the shooter.

At least seven people were killed in a shooting during a July 4 parade in Highland Park, Illinois. More than two dozen injured people were rushed to nearby hospitals, CBC News reported citing officials. Police arrested the assailant, 21-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, who allegedly fired more than 70 bullets into the crowd.

On June 5, three people were killed and at least 14 others were injured after a shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The shooting took place near a nightclub just before 2:45 a.m., CNN reported.

On May 14, 10 people were shot dead and three were injured when an 18-year-old opened fire at a Buffalo supermarket in what authorities described as “racially motivated violent extremism”. The attacker later told authorities he was targeting the black community.

On May 24, another 18-year-old gunman shot and killed 21 people, including 18 children, in one of the worst school shootings in American history.
