Who’s Liable for an Active Shooter Incident? Expectations Are Changing

As of press time, there had been 372 mass shootings—incidents where four or more people, not including the shooter, were killed or injured—in the first seven months of 2022, up from 272 total in 2014. The increasing number of these incidents is impacting how courts assess liability when a shooting occurs and security measures campuses should have in place.
