There were at least 12 mass shootings across the US this weekend

(CNN)A series of mass shootings over the weekend left at least 11 people dead and another 69 injured.

There were at least 12 mass shootings between Friday night and Sunday, according to CNN reporting and an analysis of data from the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), local media and police reports.
The shootings took place across eight states -- Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, South Carolina, Virginia, Texas and Minnesota.

      CNN defines a mass shooting as an incident with four or more people killed or wounded by gunfire -- excluding the shooter.

      So far this year, more than 7,500 people have died from gun violence across the US, according to the GVA. There's also been a 23% uptick in deaths from gun violence this year, the archive said.
