A timeline of mass shootings in the US this year

At least 70 people have been killed in mass shootings across the United States so far this year, according to data collected by the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), amid a debate

over lax gun laws that has raged for decades. In the latest incident on Monday, seven people were killed and one critically injured in two related shootings at agricultural

facilities in a coastal community in northern California. The shooting came less than 48 hours after a gunman killed 11 people at a Lunar New Year celebration near Los

Angeles, California, on Saturday night. Mass shootings are incidents in which four or more people are shot – excluding the attacker – in a single incident,

according to the GVA. Here is a timeline of mass shootings that have taken place across the US this month so far: January 23 Chicago, Illinois (two killed, three

injured) Half Moon Bay, California (seven killed, one injured) January 22 Robinsonville (Tunica Resorts), Mississippi (four injured) Baton Rouge, Louisiana

(12 injured) Shreveport, Louisiana (eight injured) January 21 Monterey Park, California (11 killed, nine injured) January 17 Houston, Texas (four
