At least 30 shooting attacks on school grounds have occurred in 2019 resulting in deaths or injuries, according to gun safety group Everytown.
The count includes a shooting Thursday at Saugus High School in Los Angeles County that left multiple people injured.
At least 10 people have died in fatal shooting attacks this year, according to Everytown’s research.
Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, a non-profit founded in 2006, tracks incidents of gun violence across the United States. Included in its count of gun violence on schools are any incident in which a live round is fired inside or into a school building or on a school’s campus.
The group says there have been a total of 84 incidents of gunfire on school grounds in 2019. There were 104 in 2018.
Of the 84 incidents this year, 9 fatal incidents involved attacks on others. There were other attacks that caused injury or death that involved those that died by suicide, a round that accidentally went off, attacks not targeting students or domestic incidents.
Among the incidents were the Highlands Ranch, Colorado, High School shooting, that left 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo dead and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte shooting that killed Ellis Parlier, 19, and Riley Howell, 21.
