A person places flowers outside the scene of the mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, N.Y., on Sunday.

The 10 people killed, and an additional three injured, make this weekend's racially motivated attack in a Buffalo, New York, supermarket the deadliest mass shooting of the year in the United States.

It is also the 198th mass shooting in 2022. With 19 weeks into the year, this averages out to about 10 such attacks a week.

The tally comes from the Gun Violence Archive, an independent data collection organization. The group defines a mass shooting as an incident in which four or more people are shot or killed, excluding the shooter. The full list of mass shootings in 2022 can be found here.
