Database provides accurate accounting of school shootings
from THE Journal
In 1970 19 separate school shootings occurred within the United States. In 2018, so far, 87 shootings have taken place. During those nearly five decades, of the shootings where the age of the shooter was known, 157 involved 17-year-olds and 147 involved 16-year-olds. Fifty-seven have involved females. A total of 716 people have been killed or died (including the shooters); another 1,459 have been wounded. Those findings and many other aspects of school shootings make up the contents of a new, open resource developed jointly by the Center for Homeland Defense and Security and FEMA.
