Active Shooter Events in Schools: A Review of Reports and Related Materials
Objective: In this study, we utilized reports and related police documents to understand com- monalities among active shooter events in schools. Methods: School shooting events were cho- sen by previously set criteria including being a K-12 public school, mass murder intended, at least one casualty, occurring on the grounds of the school, and being between the years 1999 and 2014, leaving 24 schools to be reviewed. Results: Commonalities were found between each event such as shooters accessing weapons in their home and giving ample evidence and com- munication that a shooting would occur. Conclusions: The results from this study are beneficial in providing schools, law enforcement and policymakers with the necessary information related to signs and potential prevention strategies.
