TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A website called The Daily Beast compiled a list of school shootings across the U.S. in 2013.

Overall, it shows that in the year since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, there has been one school shooting about every two weeks across the country.

Approximately 17 students have died in at least 24 school shootings, according to the article. The count includes shootings that resulted in no fatalities as well as those where the only victim was the shooter.

The article has information about each shooter and the result of each incident. When you scroll down, you'll see the number of shootings at the type of school (high school, middle school, etc.),  the outcome and who was targeted.

There is a map showing where the shootings happened across America, the most being in Southern California. There were no reported incidents in Arizona.
