Mapping 51 years of mass shootings in America

Since the UT Tower shooting on August 1, 1966, at least 2,059 people have been killed or wounded in 98 mass shooting incidents in the U.S.

The data powering this interactive were compiled by Mother Jones and include public, indiscriminate shootings in which four or more victims were killed. We added five other incidents that fit these criteria — including the UT Tower shooting — that weren’t in the Mother Jones data but were present in a separate database maintained by Stanford University.
