The Commissioner thanks you. Out of an abundance of caution, He is awaiting word on the number of killers.

This is the most-recent of a series of annual lists of mass killings in the United States. It includes any incident of four or more people being killed by a single killer in one emotional event by any criminal means. It includes the traditional suicide.

It is maintained by The Commissioner.

There is a new #21.

The Commissioner is awaiting details of the Crown Heights shooting. It is not yet clear if there was only one killer.

Five people shot and killed in this one. It's in a neighborhood adjacent to mine, very safe. Crime is usually the garage break in and retail theft type stuff.

Because he is the one who does the count and is the referee of whether or not an incident qualifies.
