By Sarah DuttonPublished March 01, 2017 09:30:22New York City is not immune from the latest in a long line of mass shootings.
It is one of the nation’s most dangerous places to be, with the most gun-related homicides in the country, with nearly 400 people killed in 2016 alone, according to the National Law Center on Gun Violence.
The numbers have gotten worse over the past year, with an estimated 476 people shot, killed, or wounded in 2016, according the Center on Media and Democracy.
In New York, the number of school shootings and homicides rose from an estimated 15 in 2016 to 21 in 2017, according a data visualization provided by the Center for American Progress.
The data is broken down by school type, the type of gun used and the shooter, including the method of the killing.
The New York Police Department reported an average of six school shootings a day in 2017.
That number jumped to eight in the first half of 2018, and now stands at 11.
In Chicago, a total of 787 people were shot, killing, or injured in 2016.
By the end of 2018 there were 771 school shootings.
In Boston, a staggering 2,858 people were killed or wounded by gunfire in 2017 alone.
There were 776 school shootings in 2018.
The number of people shot and killed or injured by guns in the city rose from 2,051 in 2016 and reached 4,064 in 2017 according to data compiled by the Brennan Center for Justice.
The Boston Police Department recorded a total 9,942 school shooting incidents in 2017 and has recorded a further 4,077 since.
The Center on American Progress analyzed data on mass shootings across the country.
The research found that the number and type of guns used in school shootings have a significant effect on the number killed or hurt.
Mass shootings in schools have a disproportionate effect on black and Latino students, who are four times more likely to be shot than their white counterparts.
The statistics suggest that if a school were to be a predominantly white school, it would have a higher death toll, the Brennan report found.
In New York and Chicago, the schools are predominantly Latino, which means the white students are more likely than the black students to be killed.
It was not immediately clear whether the data in New York was accurate, but the New York Daily News reported that the shootings occurred in schools where police had not issued a school lockdown order.
