Two-thirds of gunshot victims in America survive but for children who are victims of domestic violence shootings, those outcomes are reversed.

Many parents worry that a shooting could happen at their children’s school but a Trace analysis found that three times as many kids were shot in domestic violence incidents between 2018 and 2022.

More than half of mass shootings — those involving four or more victims — are “actually shootings of intimate partners and families,” said April Zeoli, Ph.D., an associate professor and the policy core director for the Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Zeoli spoke recently with NJ Today News about the link between fatal mass shootings and domestic violence.
