Workplace Active Shooter Facts
The FBI's much anticipated study of active shooter incidents in the United States between 2000 and 2013 was released at the end of 2014. This federal study, the first of its kind, reports that 70 percent of the active shooter incidents occurred at a commercial business or an educational institution.
The FBI found 160 active shooter incidents meeting these criteria from 2000 to 2013. There was an average of 11.4 incidents annually, but the pace is increasing. In the first seven years of the study, an average of 6.4 incidents occurred per year; however, in the last 7 years, the average increased to 16.4 incidents annually. The incidents were also widespread, occurring in 40 states and the District of Columbia.
Findings Regarding Commercial Employers
The FBI found that the most likely place for an active shooting incident to occur was an area of commercial business. A little more than half of those businesses were open to pedestrian traffic, but even those businesses closed to pedestrian traffic suffered 23 active shooter incidents during the period of the study.
In the majority of cases involving businesses open to the public, the shooters were not employed at the location of the attack. Most of the attacks took place on work days, particularly Tuesdays and Fridays, with a fairly equal spread among remaining days of the week. Saturdays were the least likely day for such incidents to occur.
