School-Associated Youth Homicides

JAMA. 2019;321(10):931. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.1318

The rate of school-associated homicides involving multiple victims has increased substantially since 2009, while the rate remained constant for those involving single victims, according to a CDC analysis. Firearm injuries were the cause of death for 95% of multiple-victim and 62.8% of single-victim school homicides during the years 1994 to 2018 and 1994 to 2016, respectively.
