  3. Mass Killings (3+ Killed)

  4. Following the Newtown, CT, mass shooting, Congress passed legislation that statutorily defines the term “mass killings” as “3 or more killings in a single incident.”73 This act essentially authorizes the Attorney General and FBI Director, at the request of a state or local law enforcement official, to assist in the investigation of violent acts, including mass killings and attempted mass killings in schools, malls, or other public places and non-federal office buildings.The term “mass killings” as defined in this act with its three-victim threshold differs with previous FBI guidance on homicide types, and with the prior general practice of enumerating what constitutes “mass murder.” As discussed previously, a mass murder has been defined generally as a multiple homicide incident in which four or more victims are murdered—notincluding the offender(s)—within one event, and in one or more geographical locations relatively near one another.
