ShotSpotter Guest Blog: National Gunfire Trends

National Gunfire Trends Ytd Sep 14 2020

 

ShotSpotter has been tracking gunfire trends in response to the global pandemic followed by civil unrest in the US after the killing of George Floyd. The graph above shows gunfire per square mile per week across all ShotSpotter coverage areas in the US in the first half of 2020 and 2019. In 2020 gunfire appears to trend upward as the shelter-in-place orders for COVID-19 took effect in mid-March and then spike after the protests began. These unprecedented events appear to be fueling higher gunfire rates overall in 2020 relative to 2019
