Active Shooter Incidents in the United States in 2014 and 2015

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), 2016

This is an addendum to the FBI’s study of active shooter incidents from 2000 to 2013. An analysis of 2014 and 2015 active shooter incidents has identified 20 incidents in each of the years. The methodology to identify incidents is the same as articulated in A Study of Active Shooter Incidents in the United States Between 2000 and 2013. To ensure consistency, shootings that resulted primarily from gang or drug violence and gun-related incidents that appeared not to have put other people in peril (e.g., the accidental discharge of a firearm in a bar) were not included in this analysis. Analysts relied on official law enforcement investigative reports, when available, FBI holdings, and publicly available resources.
