The Impact of Intimate Partner Violence; Domestic Violence Awareness Month Facts
The abuser’s intimate partner isn’t always the only victim. A recent study revealed that 57% of mass shootings (shootings in which at least four people were murdered with a gun) between 2009 and 2014 involved the killing of a family member or current or former intimate partner. Other victims often include children, other family members, and law enforcement officers. While only 15% of total gun homicide victims in the U.S. are female, half of mass shooting victims are female.
