"There have been several shootings overnight", or, "There has been several shootings overnight."
Which one? Please explain why.
"have" or "has" refers to the "shootings". So "have" should be used because there have been several ( more than one ) shootings. "has" is used in singular.

According to my opinion, the best one is have been, because the the noun is several shootings, so you have to choose the plural form.

I think 'has been' is right but I am confused. So kindly explain the answer as well.

You need to use "has been", because "your training period" is singular, and so you need a singular verb.
