Gang related violence is one of the biggest challenges facing Governments worldwide. In United States, gang membership has been in decline since the late 1990s. However. crime by gangs still remains a major public concern.
Although only a small percentage of young people are involved with gangs, but they are responsible for a large percentage of crimes in affected communities. They are not only perpetrators of violence but also victims. In order to address the problem of gang violence, it is important to understand the relationship between gang-affiliation and mental health.
Gang violence is a critical social issue. It takes a high toll on general public as well as the business community. The World Health Organization has highlighted that youth violence, including street gang membership, is a global public health problem that requires an immediate international response.
Gang involvement can have several negative outcomes for the individual including dropping out of school, unemployment, lack of opportunities to succeed, involvement in alcohol and drugs, and more. Many lose connection with their family, friends, community, and school.
Gang members are responsible for a large proportion of crime in communities. Effectively tackling gang involvement and related criminal activities can help in reduction of crime in affected neighborhoods.

Active shooter statistics

There were 2,430 casualties (including killed and wounded), and this number does not include the active shooters. 884 people were killed in these 277 incidents and 1,546 were wounded.
