In America's gun violence 'epidemic,' Oxford High in Michigan is 28th school shooting of 2021

Asia's Tech News Daily

Another shooting at a school has shattered a community, this time in Michigan, where a 15-year-old sophomore allegedly opened fire on Tuesday, killing three students and injuring seven others and a teacher. It’s the latest shooting in what has been called an “epidemic” of gun violence across the United States; there have been at least 28 school shootings in 2021.

The coronavirus pandemic – which kept schools shuttered for much 2020 and into 2021 – may have interrupted the trend of school shootings over the last decade. But experts have also said that gun violence on the whole has increased during the pandemic, and impacted kids more than ever.

The deadly shooting at Oxford High School in Oxford Township, a suburb about 35 miles north of Detroit, marks the 651st incident this year in which at least four people were shot, whether fatally or not, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which tracks mass shootings.

How many school shootings have there been in 2021?

There have been 28 school shootings this year, according to Education Week, which tracks shootings at schools in which there are any firearm-related injuries or deaths.

Of those, 20 have happened since August when many students returned to in-person learning for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. There were 10 recorded shootings in 2020.

That dropoff should not be interpreted to mean that schools were “safer,'” Education Week noted: “Rather, the definition of school safety has shifted as schooling entered the home in a way it never had before.”

How many people have died in school shootings this year?

At least nine people have been killed in shootings at schools this year, including eight children, according to Education Week. An additional 46 people have been injured.

The most recent death from a school shooting before Tuesday was in September, when a North Carolina high school student was shot at school and died of his injuries at a hospital, according to Education Week’s tracker.

Where have school shootings occurred in 2021?

School shootings have occurred in 19 states in 2021 – with the highest number (four) taking place in Texas, according to the tracker. Tuesday’s shooting is the largest documented incident of the year.

Deaths in school shootings have also happened in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Delaware, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control advocacy group, has also tracked “incidents of gunfire on school grounds,” and documented 28 resulting deaths in 2021.
