These Are the 169 People Killed in School-Related Mass Shootings Since 1999

Since Columbine, gun violence has continued with increasing regularity on campuses across the country. Fourteen mass shootings have happened since 1999, defined as four or more people killed.

Elementary schools, high schools, college campuses.

The victims have been as young as six. Some were teachers, professors and campus employees. 

These are their names.

A mass shooting is defined as resulting in the death of four or more people, not including the perpetrator. Since 1999′s Columbine High School massacre, 169 people have died in 14 events connected to U.S. schools and colleges.
