Robb Elementary School Shooting: Texas has been a national leader in school shootings since 2013, data shows

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Texas has been the nation’s leader in school shootings since 2013, according to research by Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit founded after the deadly 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

The Uvalde mass shooting that killed 18 students and a teacher at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday was the seventh school shooting in Texas this year alone. The seven school shootings include incidents where there was gunfire on campus, not necessarily in a classroom.
