FBI Study: Steep Rise in Mass Shootings as More People Die; Shootings Often End Before Police Arrive

By Steve Neavling

A new study by the FBI reveals that mass shootings are on the rise and killing more people.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the study found 160 “active-shooter” events from 2000 to 2013.

The study defines an “active shooter” as “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area.”

The average number of active-shooter incidents in a year was 16.4 between 2006 and 2013, a steep rise from an average 6.4 a year from 2000 to 2006.

In those periods, 486 people were killed and 557 wounded.

Interestingly, the study found that the shootings often lasted less than two minutes and two-thirds ended before police arrived.

“Many active shooters have a real or perceived deeply held personal grievance, and the only remedy that they can perceive for that grievance is an act of catastrophic violence against a person or an institution,” said FBI behavioral analysis expert Andre Simons.
