According to the Gun Violence Archive, a mass shooting is classified as an incident that results in the death or injury of at least four individuals, excluding the shooter. Recent mass shootings have taken place in multiple states such as Maryland, Florida, Louisiana, and Illinois. 

In some cases, authorities have apprehended suspects linked to these incidents. The United States still confronts the ongoing issue of gun violence and mass shootings.
