Everyday Violence: Mapping Gun Violence Near DC Schools
- District of Columbia
- Urban Institute
For some DC students, nearby shootings like these are unfortunately common. Some schools have been in close range of as many as 16 incidents in the course of a school year, according to a new Urban Institute analysis. Even when there are no victims-when it's just the sudden, loud sound of gunfire and the risk of being shot-everyday violence can have a profound effect on children. The Urban Institute mapped gunshots that had taken place within 500 and 1,000 feet of schools in the city.
