School Shootings since Sandy Hook

Jan. 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015

 
Between the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on Dec. 14, 2012 and June 30, 2015, there were 122 school shootings. This list includes each instance of a gun being discharged on school property according to information from Everytown for Gun Safety’s “School Shootings in America since Sandy Hook,” which was then investigated further for accuracy and additional information. Six shootings listed by Everytown were excluded because we could not verify a gun was discharged on school property. 

Below the infographic, find a detailed list with information about each of the 122 school shootings.
