Thank you all for the input . I was just thinking about how certain incidents are reported based on perception is all .

I think a mass shooting is when four or more are shot and injured or killed.

For me, I'd consider a mass killing to be three or more. Which is also the number to qualify for serial murder. However, I do nto think there is an "official" universal standard for how many victims makes for a "mass shooting".
