Reynolds High School Shooting Is 74th Shooting Since Sandy Hook

Shortly after reports of the shooting at a Troutdale high school went national, a gun safety advocacy group put out a list of school shootings since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in December 2012, which left 26 dead.

The incident in Reynolds High School is the 74th on Everytown’s list — it’s important to point out that the list is only 18 months old. Their report is put together with various news reports of mass shootings, assaults, homicides, suicides and accidental shootings.

Here’s a map of where school shootings have happened throughout the nation since the Sandy Hook tragedy. The blue markers represent colleges and universities, green represent K-12 schools.
