From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This list of school massacres by death toll contains those cases that occurred at kindergartens, schools and universities, as well as their affiliated buildings. If the perpetrator was a member of the school staff and the victims primarily their colleagues, the case is not included here but added to the list of workplace killings. Schools massacres are counted as incidents involving at least two deaths, excluding the potential death of the perpetrator.

All abbreviations used in the table are explained below.

Overall list[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d e f At least one of the victims was a relative of the assailant.

Rampage killers[edit]

This section of the list of rampage killers contains those cases that occurred at pre-schools, schools and universities, as well as their affiliated buildings, and are considered lone wolf attacks. If the perpetrator was a member of the school staff and the victims primarily his colleagues, the case is not included here, but it is added to the list of rampage workplace killings.

A rampage killer has been defined as follows:

A rampage involves the (attempted) killing of multiple persons least partly in public space by a single physically present perpetrator using (potentially) deadly weapons in a single event without any cooling-off period.[64]

This list should contain every case with at least one of the following features:

  • Rampage killings with 6 or more dead
  • Rampage killings with at least 4 people killed and least ten victims overall (dead plus injured)
  • Rampage killings with at least 2 people killed and least 12 victims overall (dead plus injured)
  • An incidence of rampage killing shall not be included in this list if it does not include at least two people killed.
  • In all cases the perpetrator is not counted among those killed or injured.
