74 School Shootings Since Sandy Hook

Another day, another school shooting in America. On Tuesday morning, news hit that a gunman entered a school in Troutdale, OR, a suburb of Portland, and opened fire, killing one student. The gunman was also found dead, per Troutdale police. Information is still pending on the identity of the shooter and whether or not he was killed in a shootout with police. This incident marks the 74th school shooting that has occurred since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. On December 14th, 2012, Adam Lanza murdered 26 people at the school, after having killed his mother earlier, before taking his own life.
