The mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, was the deadliest gun violence episode in 2015 in the US, but far from being the only one.

At least 40 other cases with at least four fatalities each, which is the FBI definition for a mass shooting, was reported in the US this year, according to, a website that aggregates gun violence data reported by the media.

Under a broader definition used by the site, which covers all cases with at least four people injured or killed by gunfire, including perpetrator or perpetrators, 355 mass shootings happened in 2015. Two, including the rampage in San Bernardino, happened on Wednesday.

Here are some other cases from this year.
