Active shooter incidents during 2021 and 2022 happened on each day of the week, meaning each day from a Monday until a Sunday saw an incident, when they did occur. And more active shooting incidents happened on Sunday than other days of the week, FBI data showed.
In nine of the incidents, law enforcement were engaged in gunfire, the report showed. In five of those incidents police were injured. In one of the incidents an armed security officer was killed.
In one of the incidents, the FBI says, referring to the Club Q nightclub shooting in Nov. 2022 in Colorado, an unarmed citizen was able to "subdue and disarm" the shooter while the person was firing at patrons inside the nightclub.
