BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s been almost 18 months to the day that over 20 people, including children, were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary by 20-year-old Adam Lanza. On Tuesday, the shootings at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon that left a 14-year-old freshman dead, marked the 74th school shooting since that December day in Connecticut.
That number includes shootings resulting in death, suicide, wounded victims and unintentional shootings. Minors were responsible for 70% of the K-12 school shootings.
