Complicating the investigation was a second shooting that occurred minutes later within sight of the crash scene. More than a dozen shots were fired, but authorities said no one was injured in that incident and the two shootings appeared to be unrelated.
But rather than arm our teachers (who have enough to do without keeping that gun away from students and having to train like law enforcement to confront an armed attacker), rather than spend much-needed school dollars on more metal detectors instead of education, we need to make it harder to buy a gun. Especially the kind of weapons used by this killer and the white supremacist who killed 10 people grocery shopping in Buffalo. And we need to put a lasting stop to the political obstruction of taxpayer-funded research into gun-related injuries and deaths.
Bullets fired into the air during celebrations fall with sufficient force to cause injury and death (1). However, few data exist regarding the epidemiology of injuries related to celebratory gunfire. In Puerto Rico, where such celebratory actions are common, news media reports have indicated that approximately two persons die and an estimated 25 more are injured each year from celebratory gunfire on New Year's Eve. The Puerto Rico Department of Health (PRDOH) invited CDC and local law enforcement agencies to assist in the investigation of injuries resulting from celebratory gunfire that occurred during December 31, 2003--January 1, 2004. This report summarizes the findings of that investigation, which determined that 1) bullets from probable celebratory gunfire caused 19 injuries, including one death and 2) such injuries affected a higher percentage of women and children aged
Firearm-related injuries are a significant public health concern in Puerto Rico. In 2001, a total of 738 deaths were attributed to firearm injuries, a rate of 19.2 per 100,000 population, which is substantially higher than the U.S. national rate (10.4) and higher than the rates for all U.S. states (3). The celebratory gunfire injuries described in this report represent a small but preventable proportion of firearm injuries in Puerto Rico. 59ce067264
