When a crazed gunman killed 17 innocent people and injured 15 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas middle school in March, the incident shook the state of Florida to its core and with this shooting today, according to CNN, we’re only 20 weeks into 2018, and there have already been 22 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed. That averages out to more than 1 shooting a week.

We don’t have any information on the race, ethnicity or gender of the shooter or information about the victims, but stay tuned for more reports as the details roll in.
