At Least 422 Child Shootings in 2015At Least 422 (Injury: 265, Death: 157) Child Shootings since 2015

The U.S. has one of the highest reported rates of unintentional child gun deaths in the world. And Everytown research indicates that the number of incidents involving death and injury are significantly underreported.

These aren’t accidents. They’re preventable. More than two-thirds of these tragedies could be avoided if gun owners stored their guns responsibly and prevented children from accessing them. (Read our June 2014 report, Innocents Lost: A Year of Unintentional Child Gun Deaths.)

To get a better sense of the problem’s scope, Everytown is collecting information about shootings involving children that result in death or injury.

Everytown researchers continually review press and other reports to identify all shootings in which a person age 17 or under unintentionally fires a gun and harms someone. For each identified incident, the researchers review all public records and, when necessary, follow up with local law enforcement to ascertain details about the incident, including location, type of firearm, and method of storage.
