Mass shootings in the US: 2022 could be the second-highest year

Flowers are piled around crosses remembering those killed at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. This year is likely to be the second-highest year for mass shootings in the United States on record.

This year is likely to be the second-highest year for mass shootings in the United States on record, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive, a non-profit that tracks gun violence incidents across the country.

The Gun Violence Archive, like CNN, defines a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are shot, excluding the shooter.

CNN's Priya Krishnakumar and Dakin Andone contributed to this report.
