Mass shootings in Philadelphia, 2021

Philadelphia suffered 25 mass shootings during 2021, in which 13 people were killed and 109 more were injured, according to reports collected by the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit independent research and data collection organization that defines a mass shooting as “4 or more shot or killed, not including the shooter.” Mass shootings make up only a small portion of all Philadelphia shooting victims.

We hope this information is useful but we are also mindful that these are people, not just numbers. You can learn more about many of them at The Philadelphia Obituary Project, With Love, Souls Shot and the National Gun Violence Memorial.
