According to a report released by the nonprofit Violence Policy Center, there have been a total of 20 school shootings in the U.S. since 2010.
Of those, 14 have been in public schools, which is far higher than the two school shootings that have occurred in the past.
These incidents occurred at the same time, the report said, as a school year started and were “most likely the result of an intimate partner or child-care situation.”
These shootings happened at schools, in private homes, and on school property.
They occurred at elementary, middle and high schools, as well as elementary, high and junior high schools.
Of the 20 schools, nine have had multiple shootings.
At least four schools, including two in Louisiana and one in California, have had at least one shooting.
The report found that schools with more than 50 students have the highest likelihood of having multiple shootings at some point in the school year.
Of schools that have multiple shootings, two have more than 100 students, with the two schools in Louisiana being the most likely.
Two of the most common schools with multiple shootings are in Mississippi and Alabama, where a school shooting has occurred three times in the last three years.
Of course, the schools with the highest rates of shootings have also been the schools most likely places to have a gun violence outbreak.
According to the report, the likelihood of a shooting at a school is also high at any school with more students.
In fact, there is a slight correlation between the number of students and the likelihood that a school will have a shooting.
But the correlation is even more pronounced when there are multiple shootings in a school.
For example, the chance of a school having a shooting is nearly one in seven when there is at least two shootings in one school.
In contrast, the odds are nearly one-third lower for a school that has no shootings at all.
In other words, the risk of having a school-related shooting is almost one in four.
The data from the Violence Policy Report is based on data collected by the National Incident-Based Reporting System.
