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 United States in 2022.
It is also the 212th mass shooting, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit data collection organization that tallies gun violence incidents.
The nonprofit 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.
