According to the data, active shooter incidents have tripled in the past recent years.

“There is a higher number of people being shot and a higher number of people being killed,” said special agent Katherine Schweit, head of the FBI’s active shooter team which formed after last year’s rampage in Newtown.

What’s more, these incidents often go unnoticed outside of the communities where they occur, leaving the impression that they aren’t as common as they are, Scripps reported.
