We're barely three weeks into 2018 and there have already been 11 school shootings across the United States.
Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in the U.S. — that's an average of about one a week, according to gun control advocacy organization Everytown For Gun Safety.
Not all shootings on school campuses have resulted in death.
The most recent incident happened Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2018, when a 15-year-old student at a rural Kentucky high school went on a shooting rampage, leaving two teens dead and more than a dozen others injured.
Sadly, this deadly tragedy happened just one day after a 16-year-old boy shot a 15-year-old girl in the cafeteria of their Italy, Texas high school. On Tuesday, the same day as the Texas shooting, a person driving by a high school in New Orleans shot into a group of students in the parking lot.
