From graduation parties to a mall, 10 mass shootings over the weekend leave at least a dozen dead and over 60 injured

At least a dozen people were killed and more than 60 injured in at least 10 mass shootings this weekend in the United States.

Some were at graduation parties, a nightclub, a popular entertainment district or a strip mall.

The US has suffered at least 246 mass shootings in 2022 — far more than there have been days so far in the year, according to the Gun Violence Archive.

In 2020, there were 161 mass shootings through June 5; in 2019, that number was 154. The non-profit and CNN both define a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are shot, excluding the shooter.

Here’s where mass shootings took place across the country over the weekend:

— In Socorro, Texas, five people were wounded after a shooter fired into a crowd gathered for a high school graduation party, Police Chief David Burton said. All five wounded are teenagers, including two who were in critical condition, he said.

— In Summerton, South Carolina, one person was killed and at least seven others were wounded at a graduation party.
— In Philadelphia, at least two people were killed and 11 others hit by gunfire at a bustling entertainment district. A third person who died might have been one of the shooters, police said.
— In Chattanooga, Tennessee, two people were killed and 14 were wounded at or near a nightclub.
