The first weekend of June had a greater number of mass shooting deaths in the United States than the previous three-day weekend, which ended with Memorial Day.

The tally for weekend violence through Sunday night was at least 12 killed and at least 38 injured in mass shootings, defined by the Gun Violence Archive as an incident in which “four or more people are shot or killed, not including the shooter.”.

During the holiday weekend nine were killed and more than 60 were injured in attacks fitting that definition.

The most notable violence this weekend took place in Philadelphia, where three were killed and 12 were injured; and in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which saw its second weekend in a row of mass-shooter violence, this time with two dead and 12 others injured from gunfire.

Seven others, including children ages 12 to 17 and a 36-year-old, were injured, the office said.

The president's plea came after 19 children and two teachers were fatally shot at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24.

Friday was recognized by a number of nonprofits committed to reducing shootings as National Gun Violence Awareness Day. »
