Since Columbine, 240,718 students (as of May 2018) have experienced gun violence at school. This project presents the haunting reality of gun homicides by demonstrating the magnitude of school shootings in the United States from 1999 to the present. Under each dot is an additional information of the incident that occurred at the given location.


The data was taken from the Washington Post and the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit corporation that began collecting data of school shootings since 2013.
