Oregon Attack is 74th School Shooting Since Newtown, Fourth Multiple Shooting in Six Days
At least one student was killed by a shooter at a high school near Portland, Oregon this morning. The suspected shooter is also dead, but few further details are yet available.
By the count of activist group Everytown for Gun Safety, the incident marks the 74th time since the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut that "a firearm was discharged inside a school building or on school or campus grounds, as documented in publicly reported news accounts." (The count includes colleges and universities.) It's also—based on reports that a teacher was also targeted and grazed by gunfire during the incident—the fourth multiple shooting incident in America since last Thursday, following a shotgun attack at Seattle Pacific University, an armed assault on a Georgia courthouse, and the execution of two police officers and killing of a Walmart shopper in Las Vegas.
