Glossary Term:
Spree Shooter

The general definition of spree killer is a person (or more than one person) who commits two or more murders without a cooling-off period, according to the FBI. Just using "shooter" without a modifier can offend some conservatives who don't want the sport of target shooting to be conflated with massacres. Mass murderers, on the other hand, are defined by one incident, with no distinctive time period between the murders
