The shooting in Orlando on June 12 of 2016 claimed the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others, but sadly, gun-related deaths did not end on that horrific day.

In the week of and following the Orlando shooting, 10 people died and 33 others were wounded in 10 other mass shootings, according to Vice.

How is "mass shooting" defined?

It seems like perhaps a crass distinction to make, since all deaths are equal, but it's worth noting how many of those deaths were results of the rampant mass shootings that are happening in the United States. Vice appears to define a mass shooting as a shooting involving four or more victims — either injured or deceased. (Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting as one with four victims — not including the shooter — either injured or deceased, confined to one general location and time.)
